Workshop on public participation in the area of Radioactive Waste Management

Belgium, EESC - Room TRE7701 - Rue de Trèves 74, 1040 Brussels

On 19 July 2011 the European Commission adopted the Directive 2011/70/EURATOM, establishing a Community framework for the responsible and safe management of spent fuel and radioactive waste.

The Energy – Transparency Centre of Knowledge – a joint initiative established by the Commission's Joint Research centre (JRC) and DG ENER for promoting public participation in energy policy implementation, selected radioactive waste management as the area of interest for its pilot project. A vast survey was carried out, in order to collect data on initiatives and practices with regard to public participation in RWM across the EU.

This event organised with active involvement  from the JRC will aim at reviewing and providing critical assessment of the information gathered within that exercise.

The workshop will intend to bring together about 50 representatives of national/subnational authorities and agencies, Civil society (municipalities, NGOs) and nuclear industry as well as other key stakeholders.

    2015 will be a pivotal year for development cooperation, in the EU and beyond. It is the year by which progress made to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) is to be evaluated. It will also be the year in which a new, UN-led global strategy and new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the decade to come are to be defined and negotiated.
