Huxley Debate: is human enhancement a human right?

Tue 5 Sep • 17:00 – 18:00

Council Chamber • Brighton Town Hall
City Centre

Organised by:

Suitable for: 16+

With booming progress in genetics, artificial intelligence and body enhancement, the concept of ‘transhumanism’ is becoming less like sci-fi and more like something we need to plan for. The term, coined by Julian Huxley 60 years ago, now takes on new meaning. How far can our current ways of thinking extend into these quickly-evolving technologies? Will we need a new code of ethics? And should these technologies be provided to everyone?

This event is supported by Coast to Capital.
