Stand Up for Nuclear is an annual international campaign organized in many cities worldwide.

In each city – this year there are more than 40(!) – local associations (Voices of Nuclear in France) organize events that aim to :

  • inform the public directly, through original and creative awareness-raising, about the benefits and the importance of nuclear applications,
  • underline the key role of nuclear energy in a low-carbon energy transition that allows an effective and socially just fight against global warming,
  • reach a wider audience through media coverage of the event and raise awareness among the general public, the media and decision-makers about the rhetoric and misconceptions associated with nuclear power as well as about future energy choices,
  • let employees’ voices, and the voices of all nuclear players in the energy, health, and other fields of nuclear application, be heard; let them express the pride in the work they do for society by contributing in particular to a cleaner energy future.

The event is intended to be festive, fun and good-natured. The Stand Up program features a joyful and friendly gathering, speeches, mini-lectures, entertainment, conversations with the public, distribution of goodies, and songs :-).

Of course this year, due to the ongoing SARS-CoV-2 epidemic, the entire Stand Up will take place in accordance with barrier gestures, applying the health directives in force at the time in the French capital.

Since 2018, this group has initiated the following events:

  • The Nuclear Pride Fest 2018 in Munich (summary of the event on our site)
  • The Nuclear Pride Fest 2019 in Brussels (summary of the event on our site)
  • The Stand Up for Nuclear 2019 which was held in 32 cities around the world and of which Paris was the highlight (summary of the event on our site)
