Fukushima's Message to the World
- 4 Years Since the Nuclear Accident -
In parallel to the UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Sendai.

Global Conference 2015

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
