The theme of this year’s 2015 Canadian Nuclear Association (CNA) Conference and Trade Show was “Power for a Cooler Climate.” Climate change has been a growing concern for over three decades, and scientists predict that the greenhouse gases (GHG) we emit into the air could shift the climate beyond an irreversible tipping point within our lifetimes. Yet despite these warnings, these emissions continue to climb in both developing and developed countries alike. A heightened global awareness and comprehensive energy policy are required to curtail this dangerous trend. Nuclear is among the technologies with the most potential to successfully reduce GHG emissions to a stable level, and it is therefore our responsibility to take a leadership role in this important movement.
At CNA 2015 Conference, NAYGN representatives were nominated to sit on the Nuclear Leadership Forum hosted by the CNA. Through this forum, NAYGN is taking active steps to further its efforts on achieving the key goals of Knowledge Transfer. During the conference, NAYGN leaders engaged actively in Public Information by informing and educating the general population about nuclear science and technology as well as the importance of Young Generation in the nuclear family.
