- The forum is an event for members of the local community, people interested in the decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi NPS, and officials from organizations and companies carrying out the decommissioning to come together under one roof and discuss the decommissioning process and the future of the local community.
Since it is an international forum, we expect people from other countries to attend who are interested in the decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi NPS.
