The University of Tokyo will hold symposiums on March 9 and 11 on its Hongo campus to mark the third anniversary of the triple meltdowns at Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

Scholars will speak on “Energy risk governance” during the March 9 event and on “Public commons for whom?” on March 11.

The March 9 symposium will start with a message from Calestous Juma, a professor at Harvard Kennedy School, on Japan’s international role in conversion to renewable energy sources.

Participants in the March 9 event will include Kiyoshi Kurokawa, who served as head of the Diet’s committee to investigate the Fukushima crisis, and Kan Suzuki, who was education and science senior vice minister at the time of the crisis. Experts from the University of Tokyo will report on soil conditions and the physical conditions of people in Fukushima.
