The Australian public is being left out of crucial decisions on nanotechnology that will affect their future health, environmental, social and economic wellbeing, says an environmental group. The government has given the public the month of April to make submissions to its nanotechnology strategy. But FOE says this is not enough.
David Gallagher, general manager of the National Nanotechnology Strategy Taskforce, says surveys show there is a low level of public knowledge about nanotechnology but that is not surprising. He agrees the discussion document is limited, for example on health and safety issues, but says it was only designed to be a starting point for public comment.
