The Institute of Responsible Technology hosted an engaging and educational webinar on Earth Day, focusing on why genetically engineered microbes pose an unprecedented risk of potential catastrophe for the environment, whether released intentionally or accidentally.

You will hear how gene edited organisms can elicit long-term, large-scale, and potentially irreversible changes to the ecosystem. You will be amazed by the inadequacy of the current regulatory framework to manage the new technology and the threat it brings. In most countries, genetically engineered microbes can be released without meaningful government oversight.

There has never been a better time to rally people and governments to safeguard our planet from potential catastrophes caused by engineered microorganisms. Now is the opportunity to protect our precious ecosystem, to protect humanity, and to protect all future generations.
