Citizens’ Jury 2 reconvenes this weekend

Posted 28 October 2016

The second Citizens’ Jury reconvenes tomorrow, with around 350 randomly selected South Australians resuming their discussions over the state’s potential future involvement in the nuclear fuel cycle.

The jury will meet over Saturday and Sunday to continue their deliberations and to answer the question: ‘Under what circumstances, if any, could South Australia pursue the opportunity to store and dispose of nuclear waste from other countries?’

For Day 3 of their deliberation, more than 30 expert witnesses have been called to inform the jury. The local, national and international experts – covering topics such as safety, economics, trust and consent – have been nominated by jurors to address specific questions raised so far.  

The jury will also hear from a panel of indigenous representatives, who will discuss Aboriginal perspectives with the group and share their insights.

A full program and confirmed witness list is available on the Know Nuclear website. Open sessions will be either live-streamed or available for viewing on the Know Nuclear website on Sunday, October 30. There will also be regular updates on Facebook and Twitter.

There is still time to get involved in the state-wide conversation about nuclear. If you haven’t already provided feedback, there are several ways to have your say over the weekend:

All feedback submitted by Sunday, October 30 will be considered by the jury to help form their recommendations and also assist the State Government in deciding the next steps.  

The four discussion boards on the Know Nuclear website, Conversation Kit and the on-line survey will also close at this time. Regular updates on the Jury progress and the State Government response will continue through the Know Nuclear channels and weekly e-news.
