The 75th Anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima (Aug 6) and Nagasaki (Aug 9) is a moment of remembrance, reflection and -- importantly -- action. Here are the materials that have been produced by ICAN and other partners which you may use for campaigning around the 75th Anniversary commemorations. Feel free to use these resources for your efforts in the run-up to August 6th and 9th, but please take note if you need to credit the author, photographer, etc., as indicated.

On 14-15 February, ICAN and ICAN France brought together 300 students and activists to discuss and learn about movement building, political change and what it takes to change the world. Below are the livestreams from the panels on the main stage.
In 2014, ICAN released this campaigners kit with the intention of providing campaigners with a toolbox exploring the different elements of international and national campaigning: from lobbying and research to media and social media activism.
"Over the past few years, ICAN has grown exponentially and has become a stronger, broader, more professional campaign. We have achieved major results, and our successes have attracted more organizations willing to join our cause
Other campaigns have paved the way and have strengthened the conviction that unacceptable weapons can and must be outlawed. Their successes have shown us what a coordinated coalition of organizations can achieve. This is the reason why we have asked successful campaigners and experts who have followed other processes to share the lessons they have learned with us.
This campaigners kit is a toolbox where we have explored different elements of international and national campaigning. We hope that their hands-on experience will be useful in your daily work."

On February 14 and 15, 2020, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear weapons will be hosting an ICAN Campaign Forum in Paris, France. Organised by ICAN and ICAN France, the ICAN Campaign Forum – Paris 2020 will bring together students and ICAN campaigners from around the world to extract lessons from the ICAN’s work in achieving and promoting the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear weapons, and empower participants to get involved in ending nuclear weapons, or take on other challenges facing the world today.
On July 31st, 2019, Hiroshima Prefecture and the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) have proudly launched the “Hiroshima-ICAN Academy on Nuclear Weapons and Global Security.” Over the coming 8 days, 15 students and young professionals（25 years of age or younger) will participate in an intensive program designed to teach them everything they need to know to become the next generation of advocates for an end to nuclear weapons
On July 7th, 2017, the historic Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) was adopted by the 122 nations in the UN. Today, ICAN is marking the second anniversary by releasing a new campaigner’s guide to the signature and ratification of the TPNW.
