Free Lunchtime Talk: SA’s nuclear goals

You are invited to a free Lunchtime Soapbox talk entitled:

Investigating South Africa’s nuclear goals

by Gray Maguire

What role does the push for nuclear energy play in South Africa’s future energy plans, especially considering the recent tragic events in Japan and the upcoming anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster? What are the possible impacts for South Africans and what are our alternatives?

This talk forms part of Earthlife Africa’s commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster and celebration of Earth Day 2011.

Gray has been involved in socio-environmental justice causes since 2003 when he was working in Tanzania. He subsequently did a degree in development studies while still working in much of the rest of Southern Africa and later did a six month hitch-hiking expedition through 14 countries investigating community based development strategies. He started an environmental management consultancy called Green Earth Consulting in 2008 as well as a Public Benefit Organisation called the Nomad African Trust. He’s presently in the middle of a post graduate degree in environmental management and while being a freelance sustainability consultant also serves as branch secretary for Earthlife Africa Cape Town.

A delicious and affordable (from R35) brown bag lunch will be on sale at the venue.
