International Conference For the European Action Week 2016
30th anniversary of Chernobyl
This year, more than 90 representatives of Chernobyl initiatives from ten differents countries will meet in Geseke-Eringerfeld(Germany),for a four-day (29th October- 1st November 2015) exchange of experiences on the "International Conference For the European Action Week 2016", organized by IBB Dortmund.
Chernobyl and Fukushima are two man-made catastrophes with unforeseen long-term consequences.Nevertheless, both disasters
also led to an exceptional non-violent protest and solidarity movement:
- More than 1 million children from contaminated areas visited families in Western European countries; today, European initiatives contribute to the establishment of child recreation in not contaminated areas of Japan.
- Despite countless problems, numerous partnership projects with Belarus and Ukraine successfully developed since the 1990s and still exist today.
Meanwhile, broad sections of the population and people in authority in politics, churches and society confirm the need of a sustainable transformation of industrial societies.
The 30th anniversary of Chernobyl and the 5th anniversary of Fukushima are a particular challenge for those engaged in European networks:
- How to involve people in our communities?
- What are the key messages and how can we spread them?
- How to reach politics at national and European level?
The 30th anniversary of Chernobyl is coming, and we would like to invite you to discuss with old and new partners, experts and politicians all the common projects for celebrate this important date on the next year.
