Five years after Fukushima, Green Cross assesses legacy of disaster

Green Cross is organizing a dialogue with international experts in Zurich on 30 January to shed light on the consequences of nuclear disasters in Japan and the former Soviet Union. This year marks the fifth anniversary of the Fukushima catastrophe, and the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl meltdown. Both of those incidents continue to affect the people and environment of surrounding regions to this day.

Green Cross has been working on the ground at Fukushima ever since the disaster hit, and has over 20 years’ experience helping victims of Chernobyl in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. The Zurich conference brings together experts and practitioners from Japan, Russia and Switzerland to share their experiences and participate in a frank exchange about the state of atomic energy in the world today.

The event will run from 13h30 to 15h30 in the EPF’s Maximum auditorium (Ramistrasse 101, 8092 Zurich). It will feature former Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan, Swiss Professor Dr. Horst-Michael Prasser, Green Cross’ own Dr. Stephen Robinson, Prof. Jonathan Samet from the University of Southern California, and Professor Dr. Vladimir Kusnetsov from the Moscow Electrotechnical Institute.

The panelists will each make a presentation, after which they will respond to audience questions. Simultaneous translation will be provided in English, German, Japanese and Russian.
