One year after 3/11

07.03.2012

First anniversary of the Fukushima Catastrophe

One year after the disaster of Fukushima it is time to analyse its profound consequences, both, in Japan, but also in the rest of the world. With the help of experts from Japan we will assess the situation on site and in the region around the Fukushima reactors. This should help to understand the health consequences as well as the social effects the accident had on the people that are still living in the area and those that had to leave their homes. We are especially honoured that the former governor of the Fukushima prefecture Eisaku Sato agreed to hold a keynote speech to share his insights regarding the disaster and its consequences with us.
