  6. 6. Information in Preparation Phase ― Information by the NPP and local disaster management authorities ― Information programmes by BMUB and BfS ― Low public interest except when special issues pop up, e.g. Tihange
  7. 7. Conclusions ― Well developed monitoring system (StrVG) in response to Chernobyl ― Germany phasing out nuclear energy, last shutdown in 2022 ― High public concern on radioation risk from neighbouring NPPs ― Traditional aproach „one message one voice“ - outdated ― Now concepts under development: „one message, many voices“, ― social media big challenge ― Stakeholder Involvement is a must but difficult to do ― Preparation and expansion of risk and crisis communication is essential for mitigating psychological health effects
