On January 22nd, the world will celebrate the entry into force of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), supported by over 120 states at the UN in July 2017.

On this historic day, we call on members of the IPB family, our friends and all peace lovers to celebrate this historical step, and deliver this great news with noise and fun in your countries all across the globe, as the road to a world free of nuclear weapons is now wide open!

We invite you to join us for a virtual IPB Zoom party where we will celebrate this milestone toward nuclear disarmament together!

During the celebration, we want to pay tribute to generations of activists that have tirelessly raised awareness about the humanitarian impact of nuclear weapons, since the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945. The victims of these bombings and the survivors, the Hibakusha are in our hearts to celebrate together a new era: with the TPNW filling a gap in international law, we are closer than ever to the complete abolition of nuclear weapons.

Our party will start at 1 p.m. CET and last approximately until 3 p.m. CET on Friday the 22nd of January.

You can look forward to drinking one (or many) of our delicious signature TPNW cocktails in the company of fellow supporters of peace and disarmament.  We have a couple of surprise virtual guests and activities prepared for you but you will have to come and see by yourself!

You can attend by signing up to the event here: https://bit.ly/ipbprt

We are looking forward to seeing you there!

Greetings from Philip, Lisa, Reiner, Amela, Arielle, Sean, Eskil and Julia.

____________________________________________

The International Peace Bureau is dedicated to the vision of a World without War. Our current main program centers on Disarmament for Sustainable Development and within this, our focus is mainly on the reallocation of military expenditure. We are a Nobel Peace Laureate (1910); over the years, 13 of our officers have been recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize. We believe that by reducing funding for the military sector, significant amounts of money could be released for social projects, domestically or abroad, which could lead to the fulfillment of real human needs and the protection of the environment. At the same time, we support a range of disarmament campaigns and supply data on the economic dimensions of weapons and conflicts. Our campaigning work on nuclear disarmament began already in the 1980s. Our 300 member organizations in 70 countries, together with individual members, form a global network, bringing together knowledge and campaigning experience in a common cause.
