I have never regarded nuclear radiation or nuclear power as anything other than a normal and inevitable part of the environment. Our prokaryotic forebears evolved on a planet-sized lump of fallout from a star-sized nuclear explosion, a supernova that synthesised the elements that go to make our planet and ourselves. <James Lovelock>

At the University of Cordoba from 19 to 23 May the third international European Nuclear Young Genaration Forum was held, which was organized on behalf of the ENS YGN by a branch of Spanish YGN (Jovenes Nucleares). The forum consisted of invited lectures in various thematic areas: the role of stakeholders in the development and expansion of nuclear power in Europe, the factors for the acceptance of nuclear energy, experience in operating nuclear power projects in Europe, ethical and physical aspects of the linear hypothesis.

The forum is a place for sharing experiences in the profession and the activities of national YGN, discussion of development prospects of nuclear power in Europe and the world, and place of annual meetings of the Board YGN Europe. Speakers at the workshops were prominent experts from European countries. The complete program is available at the link: http://enygf09.org/. In the framework of the Forum participants had the opportunity to do a technical visit to the disposal of low and medium level radioactive wastes El Cabrillo.
