The 11 of March marks the one year anniversary of the Fukushima Nuclear disaster – one that continues to haunt the people of Japan. Despite the enormous risks and costs associated with nuclear power, the South African government has stated that it is planning to order 6 more nuclear reactors in early 2012. Through a series of talks photo exhibits and film screenings the conference aims to educate the public about the reality of the dangers and costs involved with using nuclear power and explore viable green alternatives.

The conference will also be taking a close look at the consequences of a nuclear disaster by learning from Chernobyl and Fukushima, and investigating the emergency plan currently in place for Koeberg Nuclear power station.

Visit the Koeberg Alert website to see the full line up of talks and the art exhibitions and film screenings.
