Video: Sacred vs Synthetic: Competing Visions for Life on Earth

Synthetic biology – genetic engineering to create and control life – could radically impact our food systems, our environment, and our relationship with nature.

What follows is a conversation about the false promise of synbio and the real solutions right here in our own communities.
