Category EDUCATION: Libbe HaLevy, USA
Libbe HaLevy runs a weekly podcast about all things nuclear, Nuclear Hotseat. It's a real powerhouse, but she's able to bring in high-profile guests from around the world. Although Libbe HaLevy is based in the U.S., she has succeeded in broadening the understanding of the many aspects of nuclear power and nuclear weapons not only in the U.S. but around the world. This is beneficial to both sides. Americans tend to be somewhat insular, so a broader understanding of nuclear issues in the rest of the world is a very important contribution Libbe HaLevy is making. "Because the Nuclear Hotseat program is available online, many activists around the world can access information not normally available to them through the weekly podcast," judges the NFFF jury, "this is a very compelling offering."
