YOUTH NUCLEAR PEACE SUMMIT : FREEING THE WORLD FROM NUCLEAR WEAPONS

OCTOBER 9-11,2019

CANADIAN MUSEUM FOR HUMAN RIGHTS

WINNIPEG, CANADA

High school students from around the world will meet in Winnipeg for the international Youth Nuclear Peace Summit. They will gather for three days at the iconic Canadian Museum for Human Rights to learn about the importance of freeing the world from nuclear weapons. They will also ratify their own Youth Nuclear Peace Treaty, to be presented to the United Nations Non- proliferation Treaty Review Committee which meets in 2020. 

The Summit partners are: 

  • Rotary World Peace Partners, District 5550 

  • Manitoba Education and Training 

  • Soka Gakkai International Association of Canada 

  • Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, California 

  • Wapikoni

    The Summit is endorsed by: 

  •  ICAN (International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, Nobel Peace Prize, 2017)

  • Robson Hall, Faculty of Law University of Manitoba

Participants have been invited from schools across Canada, the United States, and from Japan. Each participating school is invited to send four students and one supervising teacher. 

Participants will have opportunities to learn from global experts involved in peace studies, conflict resolution, nuclear non-proliferation, and education. The Summit will be facilitated by Winnipeg students who have already started training and preparatory research. Student facilitators will help participants find their “global” voices and the confidence needed to become leaders on the impact of nuclear weapons on society. Together, all participants will seek peaceful solutions to conflict resolution, and will be personally empowered as they take part in establishing a network of informed and engaged global citizens, actively working to free the world from nuclear weapons.
