The Young Scientists (YS) Community of the World Economic Forum, in consultation with senior researchers and ethicists, developed a universal Code of Ethics for Researchers to serve as a guide with ethical principles on how to be ethical scientists in today’s world. In response to increasing fake news and science deniers, the YS community hopes to use this Code to guide and shape the behaviour of individuals in making positive changes of culture in the scientific world.
Do explore and support by endorsing the Code! It has many great principles, including ones such as Engage with the Public, Engage with decision-makers, Be a mentor, Pursue the truth, Minimise harm, Support diversity.
Please share with your own community! The Code does not apply only to the scientists, but we also want civil society to know what and how researchers can be open and engaging with them on science and technology!
