[en] “Green Square” Project: Main Findings: • Experts pointed to increasing of the capacity of all generating types, which ultimately will lead to the changes in the countries and territories’ energy matrix; • The hypothesis of saturation of energy demand during the transition to post-industrial economic development has been confirmed. Saturation of energy demand creates opportunities for a wide scale utilization of innovative ecological methods of climate stabilization and environmental restoration; • The development of other types of emission-free energy sources and the provision of reliable and continuous supply of energy of standard quality will require radical changes in the existing infrastructure of energy distribution and consumption; • In terms of transition to carbon-free energy sources in the regions, students of the Russian Universities observed different perspectives; • Majority of the population realizes the harm produced by the sources of electrical power based on the hydrocarbon combustion and wants to have renewable sources of energy in their localities; • Sociological studies conducted as a part of the project identified a lack of students’ knowledge of nuclear energy and showed need of information and education courses.
[en] The ability to build a dialogue with stakeholders in a way that broad and ambitious goals and objectives are perceived positively by the key stakeholders, mainly by public, is becoming an indicator of the professionalism – the competence of a business company. This is particularly relevant in the case of enterprise activities which impact the environment and implement knowledge-based, skill and technology intensive programs. There is a case of creation and functioning of the ROSATOM Public Council to provide informal approach for organizing discussion between the Corporation and the public. In 2017 -2018 the ROSATOM Public Council initiated project “Green square” on forming public expert environmental community in the regions where major facilities of the ROSATOM are located. Main topics for discussions were the following: Value of nuclear energy for overcoming ecological limitations of economic development and legislative aspects of nuclear energy development/ Potential of the development of the renewable sources of energy in the nuclear regions/ Environmental education projects to promote the subject of carbon-free energy (interactive educational games, quests, internet platforms, multimedia technologies) / Role of regional experts in their work with the media/ Public Perception study on nuclear and renewable energy and the concept of “Green square”. Creating the possibilities for the formation and self-development of concerned and skilled citizens, the ROSATOM Public Council facilitates building the qualified public dialogue on aspects of the development of nuclear technologies including their role in solving the problem of climate change.
