Millennial Nuclear Caucus (MNC)
Tuesday, 8 October 2019
Vienna International Center, M Building, 17:30-20:00
Organized by the United States Department of Energy (DOE),
The U.S. Mission to International Organizations in Vienna (UNVIE),
Side event of the International Conference on Climate Change and the Role of Nuclear Power
Nuclear is the world’s second largest source of carbon-free electricity. In order to achieve significant reductions in carbon in the future, nuclear must play a role. Join us on 8 October to discuss:
• How can nuclear energy continue to play a role in carbon-free energy production in the future?
• How do we ensure the younger generation and their concerns are reflected in decision making on the future of nuclear and clean energy?
• What role will the younger generation play in the clean energy workforce of the future? What opportunities will be available in the near and long term?
• How do we continue to promote peaceful nuclear technologies in a way that makes the most impact on clean energy goals?
At the Millennial Nuclear Caucus, we will hear from a panel of policymakers and young thought leaders from all over the world as they explore these issues and discuss the importance of nuclear for the future of clean energy.
Please also join us for a speed networking session, supported by the UN-NYG Mentoring Programme and Women in Nuclear (WiN IAEA). Meet with leaders in the nuclear field and develop a shared community around the future of nuclear.
The speed networking session is an opportunity to share professional backgrounds, expertise in nuclear, and professional development goals, as well as discuss the importance of nuclear to our clean energy future on less formal, more personal level. We invite you to please sign up below.
