“The future we want” must be an ethical one

One week after the closure of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), the extraordinary session of the World Commission on the Ethics of Scientific Knowledge and Technology (COMEST) will offer an opportunity for experts, governments and scientific communities to reflect, from the ethical point of view, about the role of science and technology in the different areas of sustainable development. In fact, to be inclusive, equitable and sustainable, “the future we wish” must be an ethical one. COMEST will meet on 2 and 3 July at UNESCO’s Headquarters, and on 4 July at the French Academy of Sciences in Paris.
