Core components are what we stand for and what we strive to achieve.
The Human Genome Community is a network of future Shapers driving dialogue, action and change.
Awareness will help people to see how to make better use of knowledge about genomics. How people can access their genetic data and how sharing of data will help them, their children and other families to find new and better cures. Education empowers people to take their health into their hands. We want to improve education to let people better understand how insights into their DNA will help them to become old healthier. And how based on the knowledge anno 2017, we can protect people from developing diseases by taking early preventive measures.
In our increasingly knowledge-based society, Shapers are pushing innovation to increase education about genomics and the relevance towards sustainable health.
For Shapers, collective action is central to influencing decision-making. Through targeted public interventions, the Foundation helps shape public discussion of global issues and threats. Acting as an example for how the future of healthcare will be in this more fair and sustainable world.
Shaping our destiny, we can use next-generation technology to accelerate science on a global scale. We are accelerating the speed of science by organizing public events that thrive science with unknown speed.
By providing self-ownership over genomic data people can now take control and responsibility over their health. In 2019 we want to present our resolution regarding self-ownership over genetic data at the annual conference of the UN New York. But to achieve this global change, we need to start with creating awareness. Awareness, education and advocacy.
