On 14-15 February, ICAN gathered over 300 activists and university students to discuss campaigning, strategy, methods and tips for changing the world at our “ICAN Paris Forum – how to ban bombs and influence people”.
This meeting gathered inspiring activists, artists and political representatives working on nuclear disarmament, climate justice, gender and racial equality, workers rights and many other issues for enlightening talks, engaging workshops and even individual campaign coaching by experts.
It was a remarkable event that left us energised and certain of one thing – changing the world is possible and it’s happening.
As one of our most valued supporters, we wanted to make sure that you can check out the great panels and some of the fantastic speakers we had:
It was heartwarming to see so many new faces and young people interested in campaigning and activism, and we’re already buzzing with ideas on how to follow up and make sure we keep them engaged in our campaign.
Building a stronger public movement is going to be essential for ensuring the next 15 ratifications of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
So immediately after our Paris meeting concluded, we are following it up with plans for a regional governmental meeting in Africa, activities and outreach around the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference in May, and the 75th anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. We will keep you updated on the progress we’re making.
We are so grateful for your support that continues to help us build a stronger movement around the world that is ready to ban and eliminate nuclear weapons, and we look forward to continue working with you to get the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons to enter into force.
With warm regards,
International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons
