Online World Conference – No-Nukes; Climate-Justice~Peace

April 25, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

In the context of the suffering and changes being wrought by the pandemic, the two-hour world conference will focus on the continuing urgent need to abolish nuclear weapons and its relationship to stanching the climate emergency and challenging injustices which have left so many people marginalized and vulnerable.

The conference will be held in concentric circles with up to 500 people in the conference itself with simultaneous live streaming so everyone can join by listening in. The conference will also be recorded and posted and made available on the worldconference2020.org and co-sponsors sites for continuing availability.

• Sharon Burrows (ITUC, Australia)
• Reiner Braun (IPB, Germany)
