The Pugwash Pledge
(Based on the Proposed Hippocratic Oath for Scientists)
- I promise to work for a better world, where science and technology are used in socially responsible ways.
- I will not use my education for any purpose intended to harm human beings or the environment.
- Throughout my career, I will consider the ethical implications of my work before I take action.
- While the demands placed upon me may be great, I sign this declaration because I recognize that individual responsibility is the first step on the path to peace.
