Living With Chernobyl: Personal stories from the world’s worst nuclear disaster

A lived experience; a lyrical novel; a page-turning historical record; and a humanitarian response. What was it like to live through the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, or to deal with its health and environmental legacy 35 years on?

We look at how these stories are told — as documentary testimonials, as imagined through a novel, as investigated historically, and as lived by children and their families in Belarus.

The event features a moderated round table discussion with guests, followed by an audience Q&A.


Presented by: Greater Manchester CND, Chernobyl Children’s Project (UK), Nuclear Free Local Authorities, Beyond Nuclear (USA)
