EVENT: Film screening and panel discussion
DATE: 2 March 2012, 20.00
PLACE: Heinrich Boell Foundation, Schumannstr. 8, Berlin
The accident at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant is one of the biggest nuclear disasters in history. The extent of the disaster, the radioactive emissions and the impact on humans and the environment are so severe that the accident was classified at the highest level of the international rating scale for nuclear events, the same level as the 1986 Chernobyl accident.
How has the situation in Japan developed since the accident? Are there any chances that Japan will phase out nuclear power? Can the disastrous consequences of Fukushima push an energy revolution around the world?
Moderator: Dorothee Landgrebe, Advisor on Ecology at the Heinrich Boell Foundation
Before the panel discussion the documentary "Radioactivist Protest in Japan since Fukushima" will be shown.
