2nd Radon Network Meeting
A total of 69 participants accepted the invitation of the Austrain Radon Center and the Carinthian Government to the 2nd meeting of the Radon Network Austria in Klagenfurt am Wörthersee. Almost 30% of the participants were already present at the kick-off event in Linz in 2021 and it was especially nice to see you all again and to "refresh" the contacts accordingly.
Stakeholders, authorities, companies and interested citizens came together for the second time at the Radon Network Austria meeting in Klagenfurt on October 6 and 7: The network, initiated on behalf of the Ministry of Climate Protection (BMK), is both a contact point for advice and an unbureaucratic communication and cooperation platform on the topic of radon.
At the network meeting, among other things, building experts report on successes, but also difficulties in the topics of radon remediation and radon precautionary measures in new buildings. How practical implementation can succeed will be shown during an expert excursion to a Klagenfurt school building where radon remediation measures have been successfully implemented in recent years.
"Radon protection is health protection - that's why we need an open discussion and broad information on this topic. We have taken many important steps in the last two years. We now want to talk about this in the radon network. I would like to thank all participants and organizers for their commitment and wish them an exciting exchange," said Climate Protection Minister Leonore Gewessler.
