There is wide consensus within the scientific community that deep decarbonization of the energy sector is necessary in the next few decades to tackle climate change, and this can hardly be done without using all available low-carbon energy technologies including nuclear energy.

Yet, nuclear has little appeal to the public opinion and decision makers. Reasons of public adversity to the nuclear option are often rooted in misconception or ideological preconceptions.

The event aims to reach the public with top speakers and hands-on activities about nuclear technology and its future perspectives.
