Nuclear Weapons 101

What is the TPNW? How can a treaty ban nuclear weapons if the nuclear armed countries haven’t joined? Why does everyone speak so much about the NPT? What kind of campaign is ICAN? 

New to anti-nuclear weapons activism, or want to brush dust off some old knowledge? In this session during lunchtime, we give a lecture on the basics of nuclear weapons. In a sea of terms and abbreviations, you will learn those most important – and why they are so.
