Are these presenters at this Green Cross function knowledgeable and

Green Cross assesses legacy of Fukushima and Chernobyl nuclear disasters

by Christina MacPherson

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.
