Belgium is mostly known for its exquisitely intoxicating beers, but did you also know that over 50% of the country’s electricity is produced with nuclear power?
April 28th marked the second Nuclear Pride Fest, organized by the Nuclear Pride Coalition, with different organizations, NGOs and people in the energy sector gathered to celebrate and defend the Belgian nuclear energy sector, which is currently under attack, with plans to phase out by 2025 and replace it by subsidizing natural gas.
The Nuclear Pride Coalition did what very few environmental organizations are willing to do by introducing honest discussions about energy and climate change with a festive mentality, free bananas, and four cheerful polar bears.

Nuclear power enthusiasts in Europe should book two important dates this year:
- Sunday, April 28th, 2019 in Brussels, Belgium
- Sunday, October 20th, 2019 in Paris, France
These events will build on the success of the Nuclear Pride Fest in Munich in October 2018. In Paris, in particular, we will again have a Nuclear Pride Fest, which will offer a colorful program of different actions around nuclear energy.
Our aim, as ever, is to convey the importance of this clean, stable, cost-effective and practically CO2-free form of power generation. We are proud to support and promote it – for the benefit of people and the environment.
Detailed planning of both events will take place in the coming weeks and months.
Yesterday has been packed with preparations for the Nuclear Pride Fest (see photos). And today is the day! Come to Munich, Marienplatz, to the Nuclear Pride Fest from 10:00 to 16:00!
