Take a second and apply for the second panel at Salient 2020: The Online Edition 🙃

✨ NUCLEAR ENERGY: A Move Toward Sustainability or a Global Disaster?

✨ SPEAKERS:
▪️Prof. dr. Leon Cizelj - Division Head Scientific Councilor Jožef Stefan Institute

▪️Danijel Levičar - business director of GEN energija, d.o.o.

▪️Urška Dolinšek - Energy and Euratom Counsellor, Permanent Representation of Slovenia to the EU

✨ABOUT THE PANEL:
While the rest of the world is closing down nuclear plants, deems nuclear energy as very dangerous and has been limiting it for many years, the trend in Asia is very different. A number of countries are planning and building new nuclear power reactors to meet their increasing demand for clean electricity. There are significant human, organizational and cultural challenges to enhancing nuclear safety and security, due to regional and international risks.

This panel will tackle how to keep the balance and find solutions to both the need for more energy and the safety of nuclear energy. On one hand, we will cover the technical advantages and disadvantages of nuclear energy compared to conventional and renewable sources, countries’ decision to expand nuclear programs for peaceful purposes, economic justification of nuclear energy and long-term energy security. On the other hand, we will touch upon the protection of people and the environment, social acceptability of nuclear power plants and its effect on cooperation among the countries.

▪️ H. E. Nicolas Chapuis the Ambassador of the EU to China

▪️Katja Geršak - Executive Director of the Centre for European Perspective Centre for European Perspective - CEP

THE PANEL WILL BE DONE UNDER THE CHATHAM HOUSE RULES.

✨ABOUT THE PANEL:
The relations between China and the EU have in recent times been put on the spot. Countries have been cooperating closely in several areas. However many issues remain, due to the differences in values, norms, laws as well as business practices. American protectionism and turning away from international trade flows have led the EU to find new international trade partners. Different approaches among the countries in the EU and the lack of coherent responses have caused some issues in legislation as well as diversion among the countries.What will the future of the relations look like? Will the two actors overcome the differences for a succesful partnership?
All of this will be discussed in the panel, where the experts will give an indepth perspective on the matter.

✨About Lazare Benin:
Lazare is a Politics and Economics student at UCL. His first contact with MUN goes back to when he was in high school which he attended both in France and Italy thereby enabling him to experience conferences abroad and different modus operandi very early in his MUN journey. Since then, he has built up on this and has served in nearly every quality, from delegate to Secretariat member, travelling across Europe. Aside MUN, you can easily spot him at other UCL societies’ events as he is curious and passionate about lots of different disciplines ranging from sports (among others handball, table tennis, running, tennis) to Mah-jong passing by more scholar subjects such as current affairs whether political or financial, History or languages. He is himself fluent in French, Italian, English (as well as Latin, but probably will never find ever another speaker) and took up the challenge to learn Mandarin before the end of the year in parallel to his course work and extra-curricular activities. He regrets not being able to meet physically, however he is decided to overcome the difficulty, and wishes you a wonderful and memorable conference.

✨ About Teodora Višnjić:
"Dear Participants,

My name is Teodora Visnjic and this year I have the honor to be serving as a one of the chairs for Ecofin at MUN Salient in Ljubljana.

Currently I am in my final year of studies of International law at University of Belgrade Faculty of Law. I have been participating in numerous international conferences that were focused on international law, diplomacy and the economic aspects of the two. I can't wait to meet you all at this upcoming MUN! As part of the UN Club of UBFL I have been organizing various lectures, conferences, fairs and a visit to the United Nations HQ. My goal through doing all of these activities was making knowledge accessible.

As for my hobbies apart from engaging in student activities, I like traveling, hanging out with my friends, doing sports and being outdoors.

I see this conference as a wonderful opportunity for youth to get engaged, get to know each other and expand their horizons. Hope you will join us! Looking forward to seeing you in Slovenia!

✨ About Stijn Servaes:
Stijn Servaes is currently studying for a degree in Applied Economic Sciences: Business Engineering at the KULeuven. Being very interested in International Affairs and Business/Economics in high school, Stijn decided to apply for a MUN conference in his first year at his university. A decision he has never regretted since. The conference made such an impact on him that it became one of his main hobbies for the past 4 years, having been a delegate and chair at several conferences around Europe. Besides that, Stijn has a large interest in (military) history of the past 4 centuries, and enjoys spending his free time watching documentaries and reading about historical events. "I became aware of Salient through my MUN association a couple of years ago. Ever since then, I've wanted to participate, and I'm honoured to have been given the opportunity to chair the United Nations Security Council at Salient 2020."
