Knowledge diffusion on nuclear safety based on Booklet “Basic Knowledge of Nuclear Hazards: Lessons from Chernobyl and Fukushima”

 
 

Project background

The project aims to disseminate basic knowledge about nuclear hazards in order to reduce population’s vulnerability against nuclear hazards trough national and regional seminars in Russia and other member states of the EUR-OPA Agreement (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Republic of Moldova and Ukraine). The content of the Seminars are be based on the booklet “Basic Knowledge of Nuclear Hazards: Lessons from Chernobyl and Fukushima”.

Most significant achievements

European Centre of Technological Safety - Ukraine :

The public perception of Chernobyl and Fukushima nuclear accidents clearly shows the insufficient information of people on radiation hazards attributed to radionuclides releases.

After these disasters, experience shows that increasingly people only trust information they can actually understand. Thus it is important to provide them with meaningful information about nuclear hazard and build their own capacity to analyse risk. Following that line the EUR-OPA Major Hazards Agreement of the Council of Europe developed a new publication on “Basic Knowledge on Nuclear Hazard : the lessons from Chernobyl and Fukushima” which has been translated into 10 languages. During this project, proposals were developed to improve the structure of the regional seminars about this publication and organised workshops in several member states to disseminate knowledge.
