Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) Celebrates World Nuclear Energy Day
Today is #WorldNuclearEnergyDay, a day on which CNL and others in Canada's #nuclear community show our support for, and pride in this amazing technology which supplies clean energy, serves as a live-saving tool in the fight against cancer, and helps to enable advancements in our understanding of the world around us.
This year, #worldnuclearenergyday recognizes the commitment of all those in this energy sector who worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to provide the energy to power our homes, businesses and other critical infrastructure.
Why December 2? On this day, Fermi’s first nuclear reactor named Chicago Pile-1 became the first in the world to create a self-sustaining chain reaction. Canada wasn't far behind, as second in the world to achieve this feat, with our ZEEP (Zero Energy Experimental Pile) achieving criticality in 1945.
Online Webinar Celebration in Indonesia held by Indonesian Nuclear Society Association.
As a celebration of World Nuclear Energy Day in Indonesia on December 2nd, 2021 there will an online webinar hosted by the Indonesian Nuclear Society Association (HIMNI). HIMNI as an association that actively provides nuclear education to the general public through several activities.
One of the routine activities is the organization of online webinars with topics related to the utilities and the development of nuclear technology from various perspectives.
On this occasion, HIMNI took part in celebrating World Nuclear Energy Day by presenting the online webinar on "The Challenge of Hydrogen Production in Indonesia? - Nuclear is The Solution".
This activity also raises the role of women in the energy sector.
The webinar is moderated by one of the representatives of Women In Nuclear in Indonesia and Head of Women’s Development Division at HIMNI, Dr. Geni R. Sunaryo. She is an expert in nuclear reactor safety from National Research and Innovation Agency.
The invited women speakers come from state-owned enterprises and the Agency for Assessment and Application of Technology which are engaged in the energy sector. Currently the need for energy to support various aspects of life is very large, but the challenges faced besides being able to produce energy in large quantities are environmentally friendly energy.
The webinar will be broadcast online via YouTube.

"Friends of Nuclear Energy" (FoNE) celebrates World Nuclear Energy Day at COP26 in Glasgow
Friends of Nuclear Energy (FoNE) has had its best year yet: doubling its follower base, holding seven online and in-person speaker events, hosting the UK's "stand up for nuclear" (SUFN) action, attending the worldwide SUFN event in Brussels and attending the two weeks of COP26 in Glasgow.
With a focus on Instagram advocacy, FoNE has posted multiple mini-series about nuclear's relevance to UN's sustainability goals, ESG compliance, sustainable construction, the green recovery and the need for a just transition.
They've done a great job to point out that 1 gummy bear-sized uranium pellet could supply Glasgow's electricity for 1.3 years, and produces the equivalent amount of power as around 1 ton of coal!
