We don’t talk very much about nuclear waste, do we! (But we should.) After 3 days at the Radioactive Nuclear Waste Summit, now I’m super interested in the engagement for Canada’s Integrated Strategy for Nuclear Waste.
The organizers write, “Over the past three days, the Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) gathered Canadians and Indigenous peoples to take a first step in a journey together towards a long-term solution for all of Canada’s radioactive waste.”
This virtual event had engagement with panels, keynotes, discussions and breakouts. Including a futurist, Leah Zaidi, who blew my mind with different foresight scenarios.
The event included youth, Indigenous peoples, industry, civil society organizations, academia, knowledge specialists in the waste field and interested Canadians.
I was joined by Annaelee Kornelsen who was graphic recording in French to support the Francophone conversations. We uploaded images throughout the day for participants to view in real time – you can see all dozens of graphic recording images on the www.radwasteplanning.ca
