Climate Crisis, Designer Babies and Pandemics:
Challenging the Techno-Utopianism of the Genetically Engineered Age
Author and activist Bill McKibben, evolutionary biologist Stuart Newman, and social theorist Marsha Darling consider the common threads between COVID-19, the looming climate crisis, centuries of race-based oppression, and proposals for "designer babies.” Each demonstrates how misguided scientific theory and experimentation can create inequalities and disproportionately harm vulnerable populations.
Join them to explore the limitations of “techno-utopianism,” how social movements can redirect science and technology toward a just and sustainable future, and how we can preserve our humanity – and diversity – in a genetically engineered age.
Co-sponsored by Organic Consumers Association, Alliance for Humane Biotechnology, Center for Genetics and Society, and Friends of the Earth.
