Virtual Global Conference for a Nuclear Free, Renewable Energy Future: Ten Years Since Fukushima

Ten years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake and the accident at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant. In the meantime, many countries around the world have learned their lessons from the disaster and taken major steps towards renewable energies. However, Japan is still holding on to nuclear power. This conference will inform about global trends promoting an energy shift.

On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the TEPCO Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant disaster, this event will build on over ten years of various initiatives promoting zero nuclear power, and appeal anew the necessity to achieve a renewable energy future, free of nuclear power.

By connecting organizations and movements across borders, the event will encourage a global approach to nuclear and energy issues, and promote global coalition-building to impact decision-making worldwide. Speakers and participants will be invited from both Japan and around the world.

Today, the COVID-19 pandemic is not only threatening the lives of people around the world, but also exposing them to great mental and economic hardship. Through this online global conference, we will pursue a new model for a post-COVID-19 society. This model is to take into account environmental sustainability and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and pass on hope to future generations.

This event is an opportunity to learn from the world, and apply the lessons of the Fukushima disaster to the global context. We look forward to your participation.
