[⚡️YEE Workshop♻️]
Youth and Environment Europe is delighted to invite you to attend the online workshop "Nuclear Waste Management and the Intergenerational Aspects", on Friday 10th of December from 10:00-12:00 AM CEST.
If interested, please register here:

The challenges of nuclear energy are long-lived and inherited to future generations, having significant impacts on the welfare and sustainability of upcoming generations. Achieving intergenerational equity is one of the cornerstones of nuclear waste management but given the highly technical level of the debate and the lack of access for young people to nuclear issues, this still remains vague.

The workshop agenda is structured to provide viewpoints on the issue of nuclear waste and intergenerational aspects, from the angles of decision-making, technical and youth lens.
Join YEE at this interactive workshop, with Mrs Jutta Paulus, MEP; Mrs Eszter Matyas, researcher on environmental and nuclear issues. For further details, please do find the workshop agenda in the following message.

YEE would be pleased to have your insights and standpoints in this workshop. Thank you and feel free to circulate this invitation with your personal networks!

🇮🇹 🇫🇷 🇩🇪 Tri-national programme «Youth for Energy Futures» 🇮🇹 🇫🇷 🇩🇪

👉 The "Youth for Energy Futures" program aims to enable European youth to identify solutions to meet this challenge by giving the opportunity to a group of 12 young adults from France, Germany and Italy to participate in a process of reflection nourished by study trips to their three countries. Field visits and meetings with committed actors will allow them to discover the diversity of contexts in which the socially just energy and ecological transition must take place, to grasp in a concrete way the questions that arise in each country and to imagine solutions.
