On 28 November, Nuclear Transparency Watch (NTW) and the European Environmental Bureau (EEB) informed the European Council and the European Commission of their decision to suspend cooperation with and participation in the European Nuclear Energy Forum (ENEF). ENEF is presently a conference held every year in Bratislava or Prague, and was set up in 2007 by the European Council as a platform for discussion by all stakeholders about the future of nuclear energy in Europe. The ENEF conferences organised by the Czech Republic and Slovakia together with the European Commission. NTW and the EEB have participated in the Steering Committee of the forum, together with representatives from the EESC, Foratom, Eurelectric, the Commission and the two organising member states. In the letter (1) the two organisations explain that ENEF is still not fulfilling its Council mandate and that civil society actors like representatives from NGOs, independent academics and others have basically been used as greenwash for a nuclear propaganda event from the Czech and Slovak governments. NTW and the EEB also call on other civil society actors to further boycott ENEF.
