The Nuclear Elephant Symposium
March 3, 2017, The Nuclear Elephant turned out a great event! On behalf of the Stichting KernVisie, we would like to thank the speakers, moderator and all participants for their contribution to making the symposium a great success, hopefully to be repeated in 2018!

The Netherlands are moving firmly towards a CO2 – neutral 2050. The climate objectives require an energy transition that forces us to make choices to establish a sustainable energy mix. Not only the CO2 emission but also security of supply, economic growth and quality of life play an important role.
Friday, March 3rd, the Stichting KernVisie organises the symposium The Nuclear Elephant at De Nieuwe Liefde (The New Love) in Amsterdam. On this day we would like to start a discussion about the elephant in the climate debate: how to deal with nuclear energy as a CO2 emission-free energy source.
How big is the hunger for energy in the Netherlands and in the rest of the world? What does a sustainable energy mix look like? How indispensable is nuclear energy, now and in the future? Do we want and do we dare to change our opinion? What are the objections against and risks of nuclear energy? National and international speakers, together with the audience, will address these and other questions.
Committed supporters, strong opponents, critical skeptics and curious knowledge seekers. We would like to meet you at The Nuclear Elephant. The number of places are limited, so don’t miss your chance to be part of the discussion on The Nuclear Elephant.
