In 2012 the Wise Response Appeal was organized by Sir Alan Mark, with a list of 100 prominent New Zealand scientists, medical doctors, economists, authors and engineers as the original signatories.
The Wise Response Appeal has presented a case to the Parliament Select Committee asking for a national risk assessment, and has prepared submissions on numerous policies from the collective voice of its members.
In recent years the Wise Response Appeal has gained more than 1000 expert signatories. Academics from all of New Zealand’s universities and many other experts continue with the mission to push for risk assessments on policies and business practices. A recent initiative is an open letter that is currently open for signatories.
