The People's Summit on High-Level Nuclear Waste

Rethinking the Waste Crisis

April 12-14, 2002

Wesleyan University

Middlebury, CT

The People’s Summit on High-Level Nuclear Waste is a gathering of people from impacted communities to discuss our country’s high-level waste crisis; to confront conflicts among us and develop consensus to unify ourselves and solidify our commitment to a waste policy inclusive of ordinary people’s needs. If groups can act in solidarity rather than self-interest, we can create a sane, safe, and far-sighted national high-level nuclear waste policy.

The Summit will bring together affected people from reactor, transport and dump communities, radioactive waste and other experts, as well as local, regional and national environmental organizations to engage and address issues that vitally affect our communities – irradiated fuel, onsite storage, fuel pool expansion, transport, burial and terrorism. Our goal is to initiate a discussion that can develop into a HLW policy that is both inclusive and addresses the reality of Environmental Racism – that poor, rural, and people of color communities are disproportionately chosen for nuclear sacrifice.

With the assistance of professional facilitators, the group will identify the critical issues, broaden and deepen participant's knowledge base and promote consensus building in order to strategize effectively and move forward in solidarity and with clear direction.

The People’s Summit will be held at Wesleyan University April 12-14, 2002. The Summit will open with a reception and keynote speaker on Friday night. Saturday will include alternating whole group discussions and smaller working groups focused on reactor, transport and dump issues including the themes of Environmental Racism and terrorism. Sunday will focus on building consensus and strategizing around next steps. An important aspect of the Summit is breaking the issues down to levels that everyone can understand.
