The Doomsday Clock announcement on January 23 that the world stands at 90 Seconds to Midnight reminds us that we must build a stronger, more effective, more cooperative nuclear abolition movement to prevent nuclear war and advance nuclear disarmament. This movement needs to draw on the experience of long-time activists and the energy and innovations of younger campaigners.
Join us for the 28th Annual General Meeting (on-line) of Abolition 2000, the global civil society network established in 1995 for the elimination of nuclear weapons.
The meeting will include campaign reports, strategy discussions and movement building with the theme ‘Keeping the Network Connected’. It will feature youth initiatives and intergenerational cooperation – and include young activists from Moruroa e Tātou (winners of the prestigious 2024 PACEY Award), Steppe Organization for Peace: Qazaq Youth Initiative for Nuclear Justice (Kazakhstan), International Student and Youth Pugwash, Youth Fusion and other youth peace and disarmament networks.
In line with Abolition 2000’s strong principle of inclusivity, the first part of the Annual Meeting will be held in different time-zone sessions – one suitable for participants from Asia/Pacific and the other for participants from the Americas/Africa/Europe/Middle East.
Join us on Feb 2-3 and be part of a growing, more effective nuclear abolition movement!
