This is the part where we get to climb up on the soap-box.
We believe in conscious choice. It's what makes us human. The act of choosing calls on us to use both our powers of reason - to identify the potential consequences of actions - and our powers of dialogue - to think and talk about what matters and agree on what's "best". We live in a world chock full of opportunities and challenges related to science, technology, society and sustainability. How well we meet and navigate them will depend on a whole host of choices we have yet to make. We believe Compass has a role to play in helping people make those choices well.
We believe that making these choices is both a right and a responsibility. We believe that people should not only be invited to participate in decision making processes but that people must accept this invitation. We believe that there is no longer room for blind devotion, shoulder shrugging or leaving the decision-making to people with long strings of letters after their names. We are all on the proverbial bus together. We need to care where it's going and help to steer it.
