Experience of ROSATOM on involvement of youth in information work to the benefit of nuclear-power engineering

Introduction. This paper is an attempt to draw attention of the academic community to the fact that information work with young people and public is required for further development of nuclear power engineering and formation of sustainability of the State Atomic Energy Corporation ROSATOM. Moreover, supporting the development of nuclear power engineering will be of vital importance within the next two or three decades, as it is involvement of young people that could govern the development of the whole country in the nearest future.

Materials and Methods. The paper sums up ROSATOM experience of involving young people of the Urals in the information work as of 2016 and 2017. In our work we provide references to the number of sites with reliable information about ROSATOM, and also special information packages intended for schoolchildren, adults, as well as for teachers, journalists, medical workers, and local authority officials. Here we should mention “Nuclear” bike rides, as well as topical exhibitions organized by RFNC-VNIITF.

Results. We organized various lectures, discussions, and summer schools for secondary school students invoking teachers who greatly contribute to the formation of children’s life philosophy. We also recommended issues related to nuclear power engineering to college students in order they could prepare papers to be presented at conferences and competitions.

Discussion. Experience and new approaches in working with young people make us be hopeful of success providing that ROSATOM will continue its efforts.

Conclusion. If we start awareness-building activities among the youth today then in two-three decades we will see the improvements in radiation safety and nuclear energy issues knowledge.
