Humanitarian Impacts of Nuclear Weapons: An Introduction (panel and activities) November 28, 2023 at 1:00pm - 2:30pm Eastern Time (US & Canada) Baha'i International Center 866 UN Plz New York, NY 10017 United States Contact person: Mary C Olson
HUMANITARIAN IMPACTS OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS AND SIGNS OF HOPE FOR A NUCLEAR WEAPONS-FREE WORLD
This event is hybrid--in person and also on zoom.
Registration is required for either.
Event is at the BAHA’I INTERNATIONAL CENTER UN PLAZA / HYBRID
Signs of hope are found in 93 nations that have signed the new Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW). This trajectory resulted from a commitment made at the UN in 2010 to consider the impact of production, testing and use of nuclear weapons from the perspective of emergency responders, public health and sustainable development. The Humanitarian initiative is rooted in the hearts and minds of so many seeking a nuclear-weapons-free world dating back to 1945, in New Mexico, Hiroshima, and Nagasaki and so many other places. While these days are dark, crisis is always opportunity.
