From May 14-16, world leaders will be gathering in New York for the United Nations High Level Conference on nuclear disarmament.
This conference has become increasingly important in light of the increased threat of nuclear war. Last month this threat was highlighted by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists moving the hands of the Doomsday Clock to 2 Minutes to Midnight
Youth voices and concerns should be part of the UN Conference. We want world leaders to take action in order to protect current and future generations from the risks of nuclear annihilation.
The Abolition 2000 Youth Network invites youth (‘and young at heart’) to be a part of a global video action to support the UN High-Level Conference.
Send us your video clip of ‘reaching high for a nuclear-weapon-free world.’ We will compile the videos and show to world leaders to encourage them to take action at the High-Level Conference.
