Nuclear Abolition Day Event in Tokyo, September 26, 2014
Date: September 26, 2014
Location: Aoyama Gakuin University

Peace Boat will organise an event in Tokyo to mark the first ever International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons on September 26, 2014. The day was established by the United Nations General Assembly last year to enhance "public awareness and education about the threat posed to humanity by nuclear weapons and the necessity for their total elimination", and takes place only two months before the Vienna Conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons.

The event will mark the publishing of the new book "Banning Nuclear Weapons" ("Kakuheiki wo kinshi suru") by Peace Boat Executive Committee Member and International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) Steering Group Member Kawasaki Akira, and also include announcements about Peace Boat's upcoming project together with Mayors for Peace, "I was her age."
