Women in Nuclear Declaration for the Earth Climate

During the 2015 WiN Global General Assembly held at the International Atomic Energy Agency, Vienna on 25th August 2015, almost 500 WiN members from 65 countries gathered. Scientists, engineers, and professionals representing national, regional, and international Chapters and individual members of WiN Global signed a declaration on climate change. They are all committed to the further development and peaceful use of nuclear science technologies, and acknowledge the crucial role of nuclear energy in preserving the earth for future generations.

This declaration is a contribution by professional women to the 'Nuclear for Climate' global initiative, launched in 2014 to raise awareness among decision-makers and the general public of the undeniable climate change benefits of nuclear energy. The initiative was initially launched through the French Nuclear Society, the European Nuclear Society and the American Nuclear Society.

WiN will bring this declaration to the attention of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Conference that will take place in Paris in December 2015.

Societies and climate change : challenges for education, action and governance

Societies and climate change : challenges for education, action and governance

Summer school is organized by IHEST (Institut des Hautes Etudes pour la Science et la Technologie) from June 30th to July 3rd 2015.

The issue of climate change has evolved in recent years, from a subject of basic research handled by diverse scientific communities, to a hybrid and diffuse subject with multi-faceted stakes. The question now is how we grasp the issue, define its terms and decide how these challenges can be met with action. Climate change, which has led to the emergence of a new discipline, climatology, mobilizes a broad spectrum of disciplines ranging from biophysics to human and social sciences. It shakes the foundations of our economic and social models, and therefore society, and commands the attention of politicians.

The three and a half day seminar will examine this dual challenge of knowledge and action, in the lead-up to the United Nations Conference of the Parties on Climate Change (COP 21).

By comparing approaches and points of view, the speakers and participants at the European Summer School will be asked to shed light on the processes underway, to identify the normatives at work, be they scientific, political, economic or social, to discern the nature of the controversies specific to this major issue, and the nature of the choices confronting politicians, caught between short-term interests and long-term stakes. What does the climate change issue tell us about the dialogue between science and society ? These will be the guiding themes of the seminar.

The deadline for applying is 15 May.
