What do you want when you can have it all?
With the establishment of Bioethikrat, a German government expert counsel on the ethical questions of pre-natal diagnostics, in-vitro fertilization and other vital topics, Aktion Mensch started its biggest initiative ever. Involve as many people as possible in the most crucial questions we ever faced as humans, which can literally become a matter of life and death for people with disabilities.
The idea: A debate in three phases.
- Raise awareness by asking for questions, playing up the debatable nature of many aspects.
- Start the discussion by sharing some of the more provocative questions gathered in phase 1.
- Engage people by contrasting opposing opinions – sparking dialogues at home, at work … or at specific events.
The result: A very complex topic gone public – without oversimplifying it. Millions of people engaged in a discussion that concerns all, but which was until then mostly left to ‘experts’. A book of far more than 1001 questions regarding Bio-Ethics delivered to the Bioethikrat to ensure the voice of the people was truly heard.
