SGR - promoting ethical science, design and technology

SGR is an independent UK-based membership organisation of about 900 natural scientists, social scientists, engineers, IT professionals and architects. We promote science, design and technology that contribute to peace, social justice, and environmental sustainability.

SGR's work is focused on four main issues: security and disarmament; climate change and energy, including nuclear power; who controls science and technology? and emerging technologies.

SGR is affiliated to the International Network of Engineers and Scientists for Global Responsibility (INES)
