Bioscience ethics education challenges learning across the generations

    Research output: Contribution to journalLetter


    There is an urgent need to reduce the gap in translating newly acquired knowledge from the bench to the classroom. With no secure, long-term solutions towards protecting our 'global' natural and cultural heritages, we must empower future generations to become sufficiently knowledgeable to best provide them with a safety net for survival. This proposal depicts a workable framework incorporating more fully ethical elements into existing educational programs as taught in science, medicine, law and economics. To facilitate reform, a commitment to update education and to expand the pool of individuals concerned about 'Global' ethics would, of necessity, facilitate path-breaking discoveries and creative opportunities for social advancement. I am convinced that newly created Education Department will enhance the pleasure of learning whilst increasing community accessibility to much needed ethics education. By working together to improve the available resources for learning, we will promote understanding and further endorse relevant themes crucial to modern bioethics. UNESCO can be a powerful and neutral platform where stakeholders with diverse backgrounds from all over the world get together to incorporate updated education materials and create adaptive change.
