Hiroshima for Global Peace

Open Learning Course of Hiroshima-ICAN Academy 2021

Hiroshima Prefecture and the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (“ICAN”) have since 2019 together organized the Hiroshima-ICAN Academy on Nuclear Weapons and Global Security (hereafter referred to as “the Academy”). The Academy aims to nurture global leaders who can make concrete contributions towards a more peaceful and secure world.

This year, for the first time, the Academy will offer an Open Learning Course to provide more people with the opportunity to learn online about nuclear weapons and global security.

This Open Learning Course will be available for anyone with an interest in nuclear weapons and global security. Those who pass the given assignment will receive a certificate from the organizers.
