This site links you to a number of innovative web-based surveys developed by researchers at the University of British Columbia. The purpose of the surveys is to facilitate well-informed discussion and explore attitudes about complex issues related to ethics (including animal welfare) and scientific and technological developments. We look forward to hearing Your Views!
You can use the sidebar (the left-hand side of your screen) to navigate through the site. If this is your first visit to YourViews, please click Create New Account on the sidebar. Once you have done this, you will be returned to this homepage where you can begin by clicking on a survey of your choice.
All surveys have been approved by the University of British Columbia Research Ethics Board.
