The Ban and the 2018 UN High Level Conference
June 29, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
The United Nations has decided to hold a High Level Conference on Nuclear Disarmament in 2018 in order to enhance progress toward the achievement of a nuclear weapons convention – a global treaty to prohibit and eliminate nuclear weapons.
Similar UN High Level Conferences held over the past few years have been very successful, including the conference on Sustainable Development (2015) which achieved agreement on 17 Sustainable Development Goals, Climate Change (2015) which achieved the Paris Agreement and Refugees and Migrants (2016) which achieved the New York Declaration.
The aim of this side-event is to plan civil society actions to support the 2018 UN High Level Conference on Nuclear Disarmament, and to influence the agenda and ensure success.
