Global Village is a non-profit organization created in 1974 and chartered as a tax-exempt charity in 1980 for the purpose of researching promising new technologies that could benefit humanity in environmentally friendly ways. The philosophy of the Institute is that emerging technologies that link the world together are not ethically neutral, but often have long-term implications for viability of natural systems, human rights and our common future.
