Focus : nanotech on NGO websites


The emergence of increasingly numerous nanotechnology applications triggers a lot of debate, especially about health, environmental and ethical issues. Several NGOs have dedicated a part of their website to nanotechnologies to express their opinions / state their positions and initiate or relay campaigns related to nanotech, for example :

-> Campaign for Safe Cosmetics : nanotechnology page and position statement on nanotechnology

-> ETC Group : nanotechnology page

-> Organic Consumers Association :  “information on nanotechnology and synthetic biology” page

Other NGOs launched satellite websites completely dedicated to their views and actions on nanotech ; two of them are already referenced on Nanocolors (the parent NGO is mentionned between brackets) :

-> Friends Of the Earth Nanotechnology Project (Friends Of the Earth Australia)

-> NanoAction (International Center for Technology Assessment)

Your comments are welcome, for example if you know other such websites 🙂
