Conference of Citizens

Abstract:
Mike Treder: By publishing their recommendations [PDF] for nanotechnologies, citizens in Madison, Wisconsin, hope to have an influence on government, scientists, media, and the public.

North Carolina State University researchers conducted a survey last year designed to gauge U.S. public perceptions about nanotechnology. As we stated at the time, the results were encouraging. Public opinion about nanotech risks and preferred long-term goals seemed sensible and wise to us. Underestimating or, even worse, devaluing the ability of citizens to understand issues and offer useful insights is foolish and wrong.
