HOW TO PROTECT INDEPENDENT SCIENCE AND ENSURE OUR INNOVATIONS ARE IN TUNE WITH OUR HEALTH AND HUMAN RIGHTS? A Necessity for Free and Healthy Communities

“A free and unbiased science is essential for resilient and sustainable cities.  Otherwise, business plans will become entrenched in untested technologies, which it will become too difficult and unwieldy to back away from.  We will have become a highly inflexible and un-resilient, and secretive, society.”
