Event Description

Synopsis: With headline news dominating environmental catastrophes emanating from climate change on daily basis, no wonder energy transition is asserting itself as the primary issue. States, enterprises and in fact citizens of the world are looking to organize for a transformation of energy sources to stem earth warming and save the planet. Sadly though, nothing seems to be achieved. What prevents the humanity to take steps so essential that the planet needs immediately? The solutions exist: technical, physical and behavioural! We can, right from now, choose an energy-mix allowing us to adapt progressively to the climate change with minimal sacrifice. Nuclear, one of the key solutions and yet largely opposed with misinformation and mistrust. How’s it possible that tested and scientifically proven truth is yet to be accepted? Myrto will help us understand the issues and possible way out. Q&A will follow her talk.
