This Community Ethics Document 1.0 was collectively created by participants of the Global Community Bio Summit 3.0, which took place in Cambridge, MA October 11-13, 2019. These ethical principles are intended to be used as guidelines for anyone, anywhere engaged in Community Bio work. It is intended to be a living document that can be revised, built upon, and edited.
These 12 principles were agreed to by consensus by participants and could be applied in any Community Bio context. It’s up to you! The questions following each principle are meant to inspire conversations on a local level about how to put these principles into practice for individuals, groups, and labs across the global Community Bio ecosystem.
