Please announce your participation for the infotour or parts of it as soon as possible to tour AT[1] or at telephone +358 41 7243254. We need your announcements to plan and prepare food and accommodation as well as the actions and events very urgently!

Tour Stop in Stockholm

The capital of Sweden is the largest city in Scandinavia[2]. Stockholm is surrounded by several nuclear facilities: the fuel element factory in Vasteras some 100 kilometers west of the city; the nuclear complex Studsvik some 70 kilometers in the south-west including several conditioning facilities; some 150 kilometers in the same direction the abandoned reactor project Marviken; 150 kilometers in the north the NPP Forsmark including a final disposal site for low and intermediate level radioactive waste; and only about 20 kilometers south of Stockholm the NPP Ågestavalsen, that was closed in 1974, is situated.

In Sweden, there was a referendum in 1980 for a very long-term end of nuclear power. Since then, this was delayed further and these days the government talks about the construction of new Swedish reactors. Formerly Sweden had some uranium activities which had been finished some time ago. Since the new run on uranium, several hundred new sites are explored for their suitability for uranium mining.

The Baltic Sea Info Tour will stop from August 9-11 in Stockholm. We will provide a public information event, a public street action and a regional network gathering here.
