Den 11 mars 2021 är det 10 år sedan olyckan i Fukushima. Den japanska miljörörelsen ordnar en stor on-line konferens som delvis är på engelska. Sändningarna görs på youtube och ingen anmälan behövs. Alla tider är i Japan som ligger 8 timmar före Sverige. Det börjar kl 2 på natten svensk tid fram till 11:15 så den senare delen går bara att titta på från Sverige. Allt utom filmerna kommer gå att se i efterhand. Det finns också en virtual tour i Fukushima. Länkar kommer finnas i programmet en dag före start.
