?How Can Fukushima Teach us to Collaborate as Global Citizens to Heal the World??

 

 

The United Nations Association of the United States of America (UNA-USA) is a membership organization of individuals and organizations dedicated to inform, inspire, and mobilize the American people to support the ideals and vital work of the United Nations. For 70 years UNA-USA has worked to accomplish its mission through its national network of Chapters, youth engagement, advocacy efforts, education programs, and public events.

On UN Day 2013, we plan to look at the unfolding catastrophe at Fukushima, which is now posing direct risks to the health and well being of people along the central coast of California and far more broadly across all the U.S. western states extending into Canada. The UN Association of Santa Barbara has asked Mr. Julian Gresser to facilitate a day long discovery process on generating breakthrough innovations and preparing an effective emergency response based on his latest book, Piloting Through Chaos and his invention, an ?Explorer?s Wheel.? We plan to hold a town meeting on October 24, UN Day, and invite members of the 1200 local non-profit organizations along with many other concerned companies and civic groups. That evening we will have a public forum with a panel of experts and a speaker.

Fukushima presents an immediate set of concerns:

  • The Fukushima reactors are discharging 400 tons per day of radioactive water into the Pacific. There is a wedge of radioactive water that is likely to arrive in early 2014 on California
  • Radio active material is already being released into the atmosphere

To participate, please send an e-mail message with your name, e-mail, affiliation, and phone contact to info@unasb.org, and kindly put "UN Day" in the subject line.
