Chernobyl 20 years on
20 years of Chernobyl tragedy are carried on April,
26 of 2006 year out.
20 years regarding the world’s history is a small term. But it
was enough for the mankind to propel into the 21. century,
to make amazing discoveries, and to bring the new
technologies into everyday life of almost every person,
boosting the intellectual possibilities.
20 years is the time past since the first technogenic catastrophe that
struck the world at the beginning of the information epoch. For the
first time the problem of human and nature coexistence was seen as
a simple, yet unsolvable paradigm – to be or not to be.
20 years past Chernobyl, the mankind continues to reproduce
social problems, keeps destroying its environment without
seeing the real Chernobyl has not yet started. It is ahead.
The 6. International 4th Block Triennial of
eco Poster of April 2006 coincides with
the 20th anniversary of the of the
Chernobyl tragedy and has chosen
the slogan of “Chernobyl 20 years on”.
