"I promise to work for a better world, where science and 
technology are used in socially responsible ways.  I will not use 
my education for any purpose intended to harm human beings or the 
environment.  Throughout my career, I will consider the ethical 
implications of my work before I take action.  While the demands 
placed upon me may be great, I sign this declaration because I 
recognize that individual responsibility is the first step on the 
path to peace."

Professor Joseph Rotblat:  "We young and old must nurture a vision 
of a better world in the next century, a world without war, a 
society based on care and equity, a community that will protect 
the environment.  And we should make it our task to turn this 
vision into reality."
