World Nuclear Energy Day – December 2nd – Webinar

2 December, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Showcasing Nuclear Energy Success around the Globe

This is the one day when people around the globe celebrate the virtues and benefits of nuclear energy, open their shops for tours (both virtual and physical), discuss new technologies, and work to include nuclear energy in legislation at the local, regional, national and international levels.

This date, December 2nd, was selected to acknowledge BOTH the first date for a self-sustaining chain reaction and also the date of the start-up of the first commercial-scale electric power reactor. Fermi’s first nuclear reactor named the Chicago Pile-1 became the first to create a self-sustaining chain reaction on December 2, 1942. In addition, the first commercial-sized reactor in Shippingport, Pennsylvania also went critical on December 2nd, 1957; exactly 15 years later on the same day.

Nuclear in the Neighborhood

Getting to know Nuclear All Around us

Each year World Nuclear Energy Day highlights one key aspect of the nuclear energy and power industry. This year we focus on the ubiquity of nuclear in all its beneficial forms. Events and celebrations focus on nuclear in your own neighborhood, whether it be in agriculture, medicine, power, energy, technology, propulsion, food irradiation, space missions, or so many more. Come celebrate with us “Nuclear in the Neighborhood” in your own geographic area with an event, webinar, lecture, party, seminar or zoom meeting.

Secrets of the nuclear power plant

Secrets of the nuclear power plant: weighing up the role of nuclear in our energy future. This event is relevant to anyone concerned about the environment and the urgent transition to a low carbon society. Anyone can attend but the complexity of the debate around nuclear probably makes it unsuitable for children
