Tour Stop in Greifswald

Greifswald (more correctly the village Lubmin) is the site of eight former GDR nuclear reactors and of the today's temporary repository ZLN (Zwischenlager Nord) of the nuclear company Energiewerke Nord (EWN). Although it was built to store only the decommissioning waste of the so-called "Kernkraftwerk Nord" (NPP North) the operator plans to use it also for nuclear waste from other (Western) German nuclear facilities.[1]

The Baltic Sea Info Tour stopped from July 26-28 in Greifswald (optional local programme from 24th on). We provided a public information event, a public street action and a regional network gathering here. We also had one day for an interim evaluation of the part of the info tour between Russia and Germany.
