Bioethics News

May 2016 Newsletter

Global Bioethics Initiative (GBI) is dedicated to fostering public awareness and understanding of bioethical issues, and to exploring solutions to bioethical challenges.
Through its events and activities, which include annual summer school programs on global bioethics, GBI seeks to keep the international community, policy decision-makers, the media, and the general public informed and aware of important bioethical issues. Such awareness is essential for making informed decisions and fostering public debate. Using various platforms, we at GBI are able to promote our motto “Doing bioethics in real life!
GBI is an active member of the United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI), a global initiative that aligns institutions of higher education with the United Nations to further the realization of the mandate of the organization. GBI enjoys a special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the UN’s central platform for debate, reflection, and innovative thinking on sustainable development.
