Communicating the roles of nuclear energy in clean energy systems: Spotlight on young professionals and Africa

The webinar will explore the importance of sharing nuclear energy’s clean energy story. Attendees will learn from our colleagues from African countries how nuclear energy fits into their national clean energy systems and economic growth policy planning, now and in the future, and how millennials from Africa are sharing their stories.

An introduction to communicating the role of nuclear energy in clean energy systems for young professionals

A panel of young professionals working in nuclear and nuclear science related fields discuss how they share the story of innovative nuclear energy in their communities while providing ideas for others to get involved. We invite you to watch this webinar and consider sharing your story with the initiative.

A new Nuclear Energy Agency report and the true costs of decarbonisation

Panelists discuss how the existing electricity market makes certain energy transitions challenging and NEA’s findings on the optimal mixes of clean technologies and key policies needed for the transition.

Women and the NICE Future initiative: Building the gender-inclusive workforce of the future

Participants in this webinar discuss how the NICE Future initiative is collaborating within the Clean Energy Ministerial to foster a more diverse and gender-inclusive workforce in the nuclear sector globally.
