TPNW and Sustainability

Discussion Summary

  • Until now, nuclear weapons have been discussed in terms of security and humanitarian aspects, but there has been no discussion on the axis of sustainability.

  • At Youth Fusion, in conveying the importance of the nuclear weapons issue, we are working to promote dialogue between generations, take a cross-sectoral approach, and communicate in an easy-to-understand manner so that many people can get involved.

  • At KNOW NUKES TOKYO, we are promoting activities such as mock conferences of the State Parties, dialogues with parliamentarians, and interviews with atomic bomb survivors.

  • We need to make this goal more visible so that more people can think about the nuclear weapons issue from the perspective of sustainability.

  • A scientific body like the IPCC(Intergovernmental Pannel on Climate Change) that makes evidence-based recommendations is needed to articulate the link between nuclear abolition and sustainability.

  • Nuclear abolition and sustainability have wide-ranging impacts, not only on the environment, but also on gender, education, and health.

  • It is necessary to break away from a security system that is overly dependent on nuclear weapons.
