11 March 2012, Mediamatic Bank (Amsterdam)

Moving forward after the Japan Earthquake The earthquake that hit Japan on the 11th of March 2011 and the nuclear disaster that followed have had a profound impact on our lives. Since these tragic events, Japanese people everywhere, including those in Holland, have been struggling with the effects on a daily basis. The impact of the Japan Earthquake raises critical questions regarding our future patterns of living, including the use of nuclear power. The event must not be forgotten.

 

We feel a strong urge to take some action and generate hope for the future! On the 11th of March 2012, we’ll come together in the center of Amsterdam to reflect on the disaster, and to rethink problems arising over the past year.
