In May 2012, Japan had no nuclear plants in operation. 100% of the park was shut down in a country that drew more than 30% of its energy from this production and before March 11 was developing a highly proactive nuclear policy.
This new situation (which was neither a referendum issue nor a political decision) has attracted a great hope to those who want a radical transformation of energy policy and a paradigm shift in the conduct of public affairs.
A window was open and the radio project « Meanwhile in Fukushima …  » was born in an attempt to capture and express that hope.
Today this window is largely closed.
But many people are still working to maintain this hope of May, and the sound of their work continues to be perceptible if we pay attention and try to listen.
This radio program invites us to such a listening simultaneously at Maison Laurentine and at Fukushima Kitchen Garden, with the aim to promote long-term international interest in Fukushima.
