Future Technologies We Want

EthicSchool • 17 October 2018

The General Assembly of the United Nations has been promoting a sustainable “Future We Want” since 2012. Scientists and entrepreneurs engaged in science and technology development should deliver new and innovative contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals 2030, adopted by this General Assembly in 2015. However, these same technologies are prone to cause unforeseen and severe risks to people, society and the environment. Since the philosopher Hans Jonas proposed the “principle of responsibility” in 1979, generations of civil society activists and social scientists have been calling for responsible innovation to mitigate those risks.

"Future Technologies We Want" by Ineke Malsch brings together both sides of the innovation-dilemma, to equip all stakeholders with the necessary skills and knowledge to collaborate in sustainable and responsible innovation for the common good.
