Seventy-five years after the atomic bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the world still faces the grave threat of the existence of nuclear weapons and a nuclear arms race, despite the 75-year long plea of their total abolition by Hibakusha, survivors of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as well as Global Hibakusha - those impacted by nuclear testing, uranium mining and other nuclear development around the world.
As the Hibakusha age, there are fewer opportunities to listen to their first-hand stories. We can continue to honour them by both celebrating their lives and work and by discussing possible actions we can take together and individually.
A discussion will be followed by a youth-led question-and-answer session.
