Do you support nukes?
In the next couple of years we are going to have to make some big decisions in Ontario about nuclear energy. In late 2011 the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association (OSEA) released its report on nuclear energy's business case (or rather lack there of) to kick start the discussion and to point out the myths being propagated about green energy. Soon after its release OSEA was invited to take part in the Global Conference for a Nuclear Power Free World in Japan. The conference was mind blowing and left us with a strong desire to share what we have learned. Please read on and ask yourself, "Do you support nukes?"

Opening of the Global Conference for a Nuclear Power Free World - Yokohama, Japan
Opening ceremony and photo montage from Fukishima. Powerfully gripping images of what has happened in Japan and a reminder that this could happen in our backyard too. 11,500 delegates and over 100,000 people tuned in for the Nuclear Power Free World Conference. It was an incredibly moving event with a lot of positive energy focused on how to make the future of Japan and the world a better place through local, national and international efforts. There is hope. We hope you will help. The crisis still continues.
Nuclear Renaissance? Nuclear Power Full of Trouble
Is there really a renaissance? Are their problems of nuclear power? This session will reveal the reasons why the nuclear energy generation is problematic by analyzing different aspects such as energy policies, economy, ethics and employment, from an international as well as Japanese perspective.
Realizing a world with 100% renewable energy supply with the Power of Community
A nuclear power free world consists of societies based on sustainable renewable energy. Such societies can only be realized through a shift from the centralized energy policies, and active production and diffusion of renewable energy by local communities. This session will explore the ways to realize this by learning from examples including actual practices in North America, Europe and Japan toward a society sustained 1005 by renewable energy.
Revealing the Fukushima Nuclear Accident
What actually happened at the TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power plant accident? What was the true cause? What meaning does this accident add to the debates around nuclear power in Japan and around the world? Japanese and international experts will evaluate these issues from technological and scientific perspectives, and present answers to these questions.
Paths towards shifting Energy: How do we get to a smart energy system?
What other types of systems are possible? How do we phase out conventional power plants? What needs to be done locally and at the government level. This session explores the steps to achieve the transition to 100% sustainable energy. Assumptions, trends, myths and other important considerations are discussed. Rising fossil fuel prices and the recent nuclear situation have created an imperative to develop renewable energy and conservation's role.
