Education for nuclear disarmament: The Humanitarian Paradigm

Nuclear weapons are the most indiscriminately inhumane weapons ever invented with the risk of devastating humanitarian, environmental and economic consequences.

Their use, reinforced by the increasing use of Artificial Intelligence (AI), and the rise of the offensive state of nations create a potential crisis and therefore remains a high-priority global policy issue. Thus, it becomes crucial to educate civil society to the danger of these weapons of mass destruction.

The advancement of peace, nuclear disarmament education and non-proliferation rely on the importance of reaching civil society throughout the world.

By recognizing the existential threat imposed by nuclear weapons on humankind, sights are set on establishing civic educational initiatives to raise public awareness to the catastrophic dangers of nuclear weapons and thereby make the current abstract conceptual understanding into a more perceptible danger.

Focus will be on youth education.

The workshop will be held in English and interpreted into French.
