This short video compilation features messages to engineers/scientists from six environmental health advocates that include a scientist whistleblower and members of affected publics. It highlights reflections on who “the public” is, what engineers/scientists should keep in mind when interacting with “the public,” and how to think about:
- The public’s welfare
- Public participation in engineering/science
- One’s professional responsibility when one witnesses workplace wrongdoing that could result in public harm.
This video was part of the National Science Foundation (NSF) sponsored graduate ethics education workshop “Bridging the Gap Between Engineers and Society: Learning to Listen” that the project’s Principal Investigator (PI) and co-Principal Investigator (co-PI) gave at the 2013 Association of Environmental Engineering & Science Professors (AEESP) 50th Anniversary Conference in Golden, CO.
