Science and knowledge are crucial to solving today's economic, environmental sustainability, and social problems.

The definition and solution to these problems are not simple or short-term, and require the skills and perspectives of a wide range of participants.

ISIS is committed to making science more open, democratic, and responsible to and inclusive of people. To that end, we aim to change the way science is defined and how knowledge is produced, acquired, and used. We are concerned with knowledge that is value-explicit and actively works with people. Our approach/process includes community organizing, education, and research.

ISIS strives to function as an organization which reflects this philosophy.
