Effects of uranium mines – photo exhibition at the Parliament

The photo exhibition “Overview of the last active uranium mines in Europe,” that tries to draw the authorities’ attention on the mission to reach proper decisions for a long-term management of resources, was opened on Monday at the “Constantin Brancusi” Hall of the Parliament Palace.

The approximately 20 photographs presenting residue decantation lakes, uranium-contaminated containers, processing factories and mines present the vision of the Czech photographer Vaslav Vasku on the Czech uranium mines and are presented in a touring exhibition in five countries of Central and Eastern Europe: The Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria and Romania. The exhibition will be opened until June 12 and it is part of a project initiated by the Terra Millennium III Foundation, entitled “Education Regarding Nuclear Threats that Concern the Young Generation,” supported by the “Miercurea Ciuc” Foundation for Partnership.

Other activities included in the project refer to the organization of workshops in five attending cities: Bucharest, Calarasi, Constanta, Galati and Moreni, of a march commemorating the victims of the nuclear accident in Chernobyl, and of specialized documentaries.
