Anti-nuclear camp in Finnish Lapland
Youth for a Nuclear Free Finland (YNUFF) invites you to join and help create the ‘International Youth Exchange for Nuclear Free Sustainable Living’ to be held in Finnish Lapland from July 18 - 27, 2009. The Finnish youngsters are also looking for people to help organize this event, to give workshops, facilitate skill shares, and mobilize your local groups to come to Lapland!
This international, intercultural youth exchange aspires to encourage and empower youth participation in European energy policy, addressing climate change, non-sustainable energy (especially) uranium / nuclear power, while promoting positive alternatives, environmental justice and Indigenous Peoples rights. Project objectives are to facilitate understanding of these issues and developing wide-ranging skills to participate in local and European level civic democracy. In response to the ‘renaissance’ of the nuclear industry this gathering seeks to strengthen the ‘renaissance of resistance’ to new nuclear power stations and uranium mining.
