We have created a booklet entitled “10 Lessons from Fukushima: Reducing risk and protecting communities from disasters”. This booklet, which is based upon the experiences and testimony of local people, will be translated into around 15 languages, spreading the lessons of Fukushima around the world.
The 'Fukushima Booklet Committee' is recruiting volunteers to assist our efforts to convey Fukushima's message to the world. Volunteer activities can include the following. Please contact us with any ideas or for more information.
For more information at Fukushima-related events (Mar 11-13) please contact the Fukushima Symposium Committee.

The UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction was held in Sendai in March 2015. At four years since the Fukushima nuclear accident, there was a decline in the amount of reporting on how the damage is continuing, and about the lives of the disaster victims. The Fukushima Booklet Committee coordinated a Global Conference in Fukushima at this time, followed by sessions in Sendai to convey the efforts of disaster victims and the current state of affairs of the nuclear disaster. ⇒ More
