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.
