Nuclear for Climate is a grassroots initiative gathering over 150 associations with the goal of educating policymakers and the public about the necessity of including nuclear energy among the carbon-free solutions to climate change. It was co-founded by the ENS, the French Nuclear Society (SFEN) and the American Nuclear Society (ANS) in 2015, ahead of the COP21 conference in Paris.
The initiative brings together professionals and scientists of the international nuclear community, coordinated via regional and national nuclear associations and technical societies. The international community recognises the urgent need to decarbonize electricity generation to protect people and the planet from air pollution and climate change.
Since 2015, over 150 nuclear associations have shared our declaration messages via social media, and our twitter account reached over 300,000 tweet impressions around the word. Our award-winning grassroots communications campaign was retweeted by high-profile news publications such as the NY Times, NBC and ABC news.
