What sort of future do we want? Who gets to decide?

ABOUT THE EVENT

Australian Citizens' Jury on Genome Editing

17th to 20th June 2021

Twenty-three ordinary Australians convened at the Museum of Australian Democracy at the Old Parliament House in Canberra to form the national citizens’ jury on genome editing.

 

Participants heard from experts about genome editing technologies, deliberated on how these should be regulated, and developed a citizens’ report that can inform debates in parliament, international organisations and the wider public.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

This event is co-organised by the Centre for Law and Genetics at the University of Tasmania in collaboration with the Centre for Deliberative Democracy and Global Governance at the University of Canberra and funded by the Federal Government’s Medical Research Future Fund Genomics Health Futures Mission.

 
THE DOCUMENTARY

One of the ambitions of the Australian Citizens' Jury project is to provoke a global conversation about genome editing. Genepool Productions—an Emmy-award winning production company— in association with December Media, will film this event to capture the excitement, pressures, hard work, and intense discussions over the three days. ​

 

Portions of the citizens' jury will be featured in a three-part science documentary series 'Mutant' about how citizens of the world might weigh in on one of the most consequential and complicated issues of scientific ethics.  The documentary series is being developed with the assistance of Screen Australia, SBS Television and Film Victoria.
