People's Biosafety Association in Finland
For many years, Finland was the only European country
without any non-governmental organization (NGO) dedicated to the risks of
genetic engineering. In May 2000, People's Biosafety Association was founded to
address this shortcoming. On the very next day after the founding, a GE rape
scandal came public, showing the real need for people's activity.
The purpose of People's Biosafety Association, as stated in its statutes, is to protect the genetic foundation of both cultural and natural ecosystems, and the living systems based on it, and the health and well-being of people and animals, against the risks and dangers posed by scientific, technological and economic development.
People's Biosafety Association is a member of Genet, a European network of nongovernmental nonprofit organisations engaged in the critical debate on genetic engineering.
