Call for presentations – Ethical Science festival, November 2020

In November, Student/Young Pugwash (SYP) UK is hosting a ‘Festival of Ethical Science‘. This will be a series of webinars and discussions on the ethical implications of science and technology – and we want your views!

Could you give a presentation for 5 to 15 minutes? Anything on your mind?

We are seeking proposals for presentations on the theme of Ethical Science, including but not limited to:

* Can STEM be ethical? What are the social responsibilities of scientists? Should science be political?
* Responsible Research and Innovation
* Ethical issues in war, e.g. nuclear weapons, the defence industry
* Social and ethical issues with digital technologies
* Should there be a ‘Hippocratic Oath’ for scientists?
* What new technologies should we be worried about?

Presenters can come from all disciplines and all educational levels. To make a proposal, please complete this form

DEADLINE IS: 30th September 2020

If you would like to discuss your idea before submitting, please email
