Bioethics Conference in USA Welcomes VNY 2020
USA – the American University of Sovereign Nations (AUSN) convened an international conference on “Sustainable Development, Bioethics, Education, Peace, and Cross-Cultural Dialogue Conference” in Himalayan Grill, Huntington Beach, Los Angeles, California, USA.
Participants from East and West, North and South, discussed together questions such as when we should allow gene-edited embryos when we should quarantine people, and how do we allow people to pass from this life to the next. What are the ethical dilemmas from migration to the colonialization of education? A common answer is that Bioethics is the Love of Life, said Professor Darryl Macer, the President of AUSN, former UNESCO Regional Adviser for Asia and the Pacific, a native of New Zealand.
Among the topics discussed were “Aftercare for organ recipients, donors and donor families in Japan” by Dr. Maria-Keiko Yasuoka, Hokkaido University, Japan; “Gene-Edited Human Babies: scandal and/or breakthrough? by Dr. Esra Bilir, Turkey; UCSD Moores Cancer Center; “The Role of Human Values, Bioethics and Cross-Cultural Ethics in Educational Policies for Sustainable Development”, by Dr. Suma Parahakaran, Malaysia; “How my Buddhist Faith and Meditation helped in the process of letting go my Mother”, Venerable Sopon, Dhammakaya International Meditation Center, Azusa, California.
There were also experts from Bangladesh, New Zealand, USA and Nepal, and several Native American tribes.

The forum also welcomes the initiative of “VISIT NEPAL 2020” from the Nepal Government and appreciated the people of Nepal for welcoming the world to Nepal.
