English translation of material used at "Meeting to Answer Questions on Radiation"

English translation of the material used at "Meeting to Answer Questions on Radiation" was made. "Meeting to Answer Questions on Radiation" was planned, just after the TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Accident, by Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) with the purpose of providing comprehensive knowledge of radiation to the public. A total of 220 meetings was carried out from July, 2011 to February, 2013 mainly in Fukushima prefecture. Since the material used in the meetings contains many charts and is easy to understand, it has drawn attention of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) who has in recent years actively supported outreach activities to disseminate knowledge on nuclear and radiation. At one of the IAEA meetings in May, 2017, Asian Network for Education in Nuclear Technology (ANENT), it was requested to make it for the usage of all. Providing IAEA and the member states with the English translation of the material will be a meaningful contribution sharing the outreach activity experiences in Japan.

At the request of the government of Japan and Fukushima prefecture, the Nuclear Fuel Cycle Engineering Laboratories and the Nuclear Science Research Institute of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) conducted the internal dosimetry examination program for the residents of Fukushima prefecture (Fukushima residents) affected by the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident by whole-body counting (WBC) starting in July 2011, the year of Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. At the internal dosimetry examination, almost Fukushima residents worried about effects of radiation and suffered from various serious situations, which were caused by not only the nuclear accident but also the earthquake and tsunami. Therefore, JAEA had direct dialogue focused on active listening, as risk communication with Fukushima residents in order to mitigate Fukushima residents' anxiety and stress. This report evaluates the effects of the activities and shows the ways of our communication with Fukushima residents during WBC to mitigate Fukushima residents' anxiety and stress.

Nuclear Fuel Cycle Engineering Laboratories (NCL) of JAEA has held the explanatory meetings in Ibaraki prefecture since May 2011 in order to transmit factual information and reduce the excessive anxiety about radiation risk. Applying to our past risk communication process to the explanatory meetings, we built a process of interactivity between participants and our staff for the meetings. We incorporated the participants' needs into the meetings, and, as far as possible, we had interactive two-way communication so that the meetings were not one-way and persuasive but promote mutual understanding. According to the opinions and the results of questionnaire survey that were received from the participants, it became evident that the interactive explanatory meetings were effective in reducing participants' anxiety. This report explains the risk communication process for carrying out the explanatory meeting, and shows the activities of the meetings, questions and opinions from the participants, and questionnaire results that NCL implemented.

JAEA has held public meetings on radiation and its health effects mainly for parents of students in kindergartens, elementary schools, and junior high schools in Fukushima prefecture after the Fukushima nuclear accident. These meetings are held based on our experience of practicing risk communication activities for a decade in JAEA with local residents. Questionnaires were collected after the meetings. By analyzing questionnaires, we confirmed that interactive communication is effective in increasing participants' understanding and in decreasing their anxiety. Risk communication study office supported the staff members of the meetings providing information such as participants' questions in the past meetings. To provide information, we made a homepage and held the orientation for the staff members Questionnaires of the staff members were also collected and analyzed after the public meetings.

We produced the messages for risk communication by working in conjunction with local residents. The purpose of this activity is to make the messages easier for the local residents to understand. The messages were created from the viewpoint of the residents by working in close collaboration with us. As a result of those collaborations, we were able to produce several messages about radiation, environmental monitoring and the nuclear fuel cycle. This report includes all produced messages and evaluates the effects of the activities. Future development of our activities is also described.

The Public Acceptance(P.A.) team, "Sweet Potato", was established in December 1996 to promote public understanding of nuclear. Tokai Village has been the center of nuclear energy development in Japan for almost forty years. Although the residents have been very supportive, the critical JCO accident in 1999 caused them a great deal of anxiety and distrust. Soon after, the P.A. team's objectives were altered to accommodate the resulting new needs of the public. The focus was shifted to local residents and young people in order that they would have better understanding of nuclear energy. Since 2001, one of the P.A. team's main activities has been giving "Nuclear Disaster and Radiation Prevention" and "Energy and Radiation" presentations at elementary schools and junior high schools throughout the Tokai region. This paper presents the findings, results and lessons learned from these and other activities, and will contribute to the future work of the PA team.

As our risk communication activities after the Fukushima nuclear accident, we have conducted explanatory meetings on radiation risk and its influence on human health. We carried out the meetings to reduce anxiety and concerns about radiation risk among residents in Ibaraki and Fukushima prefectures. The meetings incorporate the residents needs, and have interactive two-way communication as long as possible. We show the opinions of the participants and the results of the questionnaire survey in the meetings.
