63 - 69
This paper takes the viewpoint that the current rational approach that is used throughout the world to calculate risks, is insufficient for decision-making and dealing with risks in the next generations. Moral aspects and the acceptability of risks should be taken into consideration while determining risk priorities to optimize decision-making. A risk calculation formula is proposed to this end, whereby principles such as voluntariness, equity and fairness are taken into account in the formula.
