Dear BNS members,
Dear all,

As you all know, the future of nuclear power production seems to be jeopardized across Europe. Germany and Switzerland took their decisions and we all respect that democratic process (even if we are puzzled by the justification of these decisions). For Belgium, situation is unclear and thus it is even more important than before for BNS-YG to provide information to as much people as possible. The aim is not to convince people or polarize even more the debate but to give tools to people to make their own mind about what they want in the coming years. In order to do that, we tried the last few months to discuss with engineering students about the nuclear situation in Belgium and we will try to focus our future Evening Lectures and events around topics like seismic situations in Belgium… Please try to forward this newsletter to anyone that could be interested and also be aware that BNS-YG is available to collaborate if you are organizing informative events about nuclear.

Best regards

Mehdi Moussaïd, BNS-YG Chairman
