Beyond Nuclear Conference - POSTPONED

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO AUTUMN 2020 - APOLOGIES FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE CAUSED 

Helensburgh CND have organised a conference to discuss the worrying developments at the Hunterston Nuclear Power Station and the alternatives available on 4th April 2020 in Glasgow. All our members and supporters are invited to attend.

BEYOND NUCLEAR CONFERENCE

SATURDAY 4TH APRIL 2020

11:00am - 5:00pm

ADELAIDE PLACE BAPTIST CHURCH, GLASGOW

Why would Scotland want or need to have nuclear power when we have almost unlimited potential for clean, renewable energy production?

That is the question posed to the conference which is a day of two halves, with an examination of the downside of nuclear power in the morning and the potential for renewables in the afternoon. Scottish CND chair Lynn Jamieson will lead the discussion by establishing the link between nuclear power and nuclear weapons.

Other special guest speakers include Rae Street (CND UK) who will talk about the campaign 'No to Nuclear Power' and will concentrate on expensive, dirty and dangerous. Dr Ian Fairlie will also contribute in his role as an independent radiation consultant focusing on Hunterton Nuclear Power Plant in Ayrshire. 

The tickets for this event are priced at £8.00 for concessions and £12.00 standard ticket which will include a lunch on site. Mike Danson (Professor of Enterprise Policy at Heriot-Watt University) will start the afternoon session with an overview of renewable energy in Scotland. Throughout the sessions, there will be an opportunity for the audience to ask questions to our speaker and hopefully have a lively debate.

David Toke (Reader in Energy Politics at Aberdeen Univerity) will be talking about the capability of renewables to supply not just electricity by 100% of the UK's energy needs. Following that discussion Scottish CND consultant and No2Nuclear editor Pete Roche will spend some time exploring the jobs aspect particularly in relation to 'Just Transition', and the conference will conclude with an examination of renewable energy sources in relation to the climate emergency by Mark Ruskell (MSP and Scottish Green Party Spokesperson for Energy and Climate).

The conference is sure to be a first-class event and will be live-streamed by our friends at Independence Live. Get your tickets now!
