Improving Public Acceptance of the Nuclear Industry - An Example of using the Past to help the Future. In spite of the on-going efforts being made by the nuclear industry to gain greater acceptance and support by the general public, there still remains significant misunderstanding and even paranoia in some sections. The strong adverse reactions that have been generated as a consequence of the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in 2011 underline the gulf that still exists in the broader community. However the situation is not uniform and there is a much higher level of public acceptance for applications in the health care sector and especially those related to the diagnosis and treatment medical conditions. This video describes the conversation of a young boy and his grandfather on the topic of Nuclear Radiation. Mark’s grandfather answering the question of how nuclear science and applications improves human life. Mark imagine the products which are made with the use of nuclear radiation. At the end Mark finds nuclear radiation useful to human life and came up with an idea of “World Nuclear Radiation Day” celebration to get more public acceptance for nuclear technologies. I hope with the help of WNU 2015 Olympiad, this video will reach to maximum people and create public acceptance to nuclear industry.
