    share lessons learnt from fukushima

    The Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant disaster was truly unprecedented, particularly for the Japanese community who had believed that nuclear power is safe and clean energy. The disaster led to massive displacement, loss of communities and livelihoods, etc. Even after more than three and a half years, many people still cannot return. JCC2015 will highlight these ongoing issues, as learning from this disaster will enhance the world’s preparedness towards the future.
