Application Deadline- 15th June 2018
Producing the right message and sharing it with the public using the relevant channels is among the most important challenges for the management of nuclear and radiological emergencies. For the International Symposium on Communicating Nuclear and Radiological Emergencies to the Public (CNREP) taking place this year, the IAEA is looking to encourage the inclusion of youth into the global discussion on public communication when such emergencies occur.
Students and early career professionals between the ages of 18 and 25 are invited to submit an innovative concept for a ‘communicators competition’ on how to communicate nuclear or radiological emergencies to the public.
Public communication requires innovative tools and techniques to remain effective. By informing the public about hazards and protective actions and by building and maintaining public trust, public communicators can prevent panic, minimize rumours, and respond to misinformation during nuclear and radiological emergencies.
Do you have an innovative idea to effectively communicate nuclear and radiological emergencies to the public?
Five finalists will be invited to Vienna, Austria to present their innovative concepts at the International Symposium from 1 to 5 October 2018. The IAEA will cover travel and daily subsistence allowance. The five finalists will also make an exclusive visit to the IAEA Incident and Emergency Centre and the IAEA Press Office and meet with experts on nuclear emergency communication.
The Official Guidelines for the competition can be found here
