Debating the future of nuclear power
Date: 11/05/2012. Story submitted by: SuzanneRutter
High profile speakers are set to get the city of Sheffield talking about nuclear power and its implications for the future following the Fukushima disaster in Japan last year.
The public are invited to join experts from around the world, local representatives and academics from the University of Sheffield on 23 May 2012 to discuss the safety and reliability of nuclear power and the international response to events at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in March 2011.
Local representatives on the panel will include Jillian Creasy, Sheffield’s first elected Green Party city councillor, and Teresa Hitchcock, a specialist in environmental and climate law from the global law firm DLA Piper.
Dr Peter Matanle, from the university’s School of East Asian Studies, said: “Nuclear energy is once again in question due to the disaster at Fukushima. Although Sheffield is a long way from the disaster zone, all countries are reviewing their energy policies.
"Everyone should feel that they have opportunities to learn about the issues and contribute to discussions about our common energy future.
Registration and networking will begin at 4pm with the symposium at 4.30pm. The event is free and open to the public but places must be booked in advance via the website below.
