The Beyond Nuclear Initiative (BNI) aims to highlight the adverse impact of the uranium and wider nuclear industry in Australia and promote a nuclear-free future. Project workers engage with a range of stakeholder organisations including health professionals, trade unions, Aboriginal representative bodies and human rights organisations to build support networks for affected communities and national awareness of issues facing remote and isolated communities. The project focuses on the interface between the nuclear industry and Indigenous people.

BNI is a joint project of Arid Lands Environment CentreAustralian Conservation Foundation and

Friends of the Earth Australia.
