Building Public Confidence: Communication, Trust and Credibility

Presented by: Kirsty Gogan, Co-Founder and Executive Director for Energy for Humanity (EFH)

Nuclear projects are controversial, making them difficult to manage because of complex stakeholder concerns. It is not enough for nuclear new build projects to have a robust design and solid business plan - nuclear proponents also need to develop social intelligence to be successful at stakeholder engagement. The nuclear sector's public outreach method has traditionally relied on a "deficit model" of communication, which, as evidence has shown, is largely ineffective and can even backfire. This presentation will synthesise some of the best available social science research, whilst offering practical advice about how nuclear proponents can make the shift toward an "engagement model" for communications and outreach.
