The theme for this year’s celebration shall be ‘Protecting Future Generations’ and  is inspired by the Article 16 of the UNESCO Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights (UDBHR) where it is explicitly stated that “the impact of life sciences on future generations, including on their genetic constitution, should be given due regard”. Protecting future generations in bioethics involves ensuring that the ethical principles and values that guide scientific research and medical practice today are sustained and strengthened for their benefit. Protecting future generations is multidimensional and involves creating an environment which provides physical, mental, psychological, social, and moral health. It requires a commitment to ethical principles that promote the health and wellbeing of individuals and society as a whole, ongoing reflection, discussion, and collaboration among healthcare professionals, researchers, policymakers, and the public.

The congress will be live streamed by the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens YouTube channel and media sponsor BCI Media BROADCAST CANADIAN &  INTERNATIONAL TV NETWORK.

Registered participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
