Workshop on autonomous and remotely operated systems: Benefits and challenges to nuclear security


The WINS Academy Ambassador Programme provides a vital role to outreach to potentially interested individuals and organisations globally. The outreach activities carried out by Ambassadors are essential for the continued messaging and growth of commitments being made to ensure nuclear and other radioactive materials used for civilian purposes do not fall into harms way and that a strong and proactive nuclear security culture is embedded, supported by increased awareness and knowledge of nuclear security through certification of professionals.

With 32 Ambassadors representing a total of 24 countries, WINS wants to ensure that Ambassadors are supported and can work collectively to achieve commons goals that make a difference within their countries and regions. WINS is committed to the growth of the Ambassador programme and networking opportunities for sharing of experience and lessons learned.



The is the 2nd webinar in a series to be held on enhancing and growing the Ambassador programme.  The webinar will give Ambassadors the opportunity to find out more about the new WINS Executive Director, together with ideas that are formulating about the future directions WINS is embarking upon.  It will also raise the awareness and importance WINS gives to the WINS Gender Champions Programme. Ambassadors will be encouraged to give their views and the webinar will provide the opportunity for open discussion and collective approach to enhance nuclear security culture and minimize threats and risks.
