U.S. WIN Outreach Webinar: Environmental Justice in the Nuclear Industry
Date and Time: Thursday, October 20th, 2022, 12-1pm ET
Clean energy technologies are a key element to combating climate change, and nuclear energy plays a critical role in our path to a carbon-free future. While converting to clean energy to mitigate climate change will have a more equitable impact on communities across the globe, there are other tangible elements of environmental justice that are equally – and often more – important to disadvantaged communities. Members of the nuclear industry are actively working to foster trusting, inclusive relationships with disadvantaged communities and to ensure their values are centered when decisions are made.
In this webinar, our panel of experts will share their insight on how we can all work to promote environmental justice within the nuclear industry and to ensure that carbon-free energy is equitable across diverse communities.
