The Gene Ethics Network
Working to keep Australia GE-free
The Gene Ethics Network was founded in 1988. This was done to promote critical community discussion and debate on the economic, market, environmental, social and ethical impacts of genetic engineering (GE) technologies. The Network campaigns for the precautionary principle to be rigorously applied to all uses of GE. We also promote community participation in policy-making processes on: GE regulation, proposed releases of GE organisms and their products, food labeling, feral animal and weed control. Gene Ethics Network supporters keep an eye on all uses of gene technology.
