Youth Summit against NATO
NOBEL LAUREATES, 19 Apr 2021
The International Peace Bureau Would Like to Introduce the First Youth Summit against NATO
Webinar – Sat 24 Apr 2021
5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
The future of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) depends on young people. NATO Secretary-General, Jens Stoltenberg, said that ”young people have the greatest stake in NATO’s future” during the NATO 2030 Youth Summit held in November last year. The new agenda of the transatlantic alliance called “NATO 2030” seeks to indoctrinate younger generations into the false narrative of militarized security that the alliance has promoted for decades. The first Youth Summit Against NATO will gather young leaders from the peace movement to share their thoughts about resisting NATO and the implications this nuclear-armed alliance will have for their future.
Registration for the event is now open and can be accessed here.

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.
