UN Working Group on Nuclear Disarmament

The new UN working group on nuclear disarmament begins today in Geneva, Switzerland. This is it’s first session and it will meet between 22 – 26 February. The working group is open to all states, and is a unique opportunity for governments to start working on developing the elements for a new treaty prohibiting nuclear weapons.

Thanks to everyone who sent emails to your UN Ambassador last week! Our ICAN team will make sure to follow-up with all delegations during the meetings this week to let them know we expect them to support a ban on nuclear weapons.

Here are a few things you can do to keep updated on what’s going on at the UN working group throughout the meetings this week:

√ Read our latest Huffington Post article about why this meeting is important.

√ Follow the discussions on Twitter. ICAN will tweet highlights and updates from the meetings via @nuclearban and you can follow other comments through the hashtags #OEWG and #goodbyenukes

√ Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for instant snapshots from the meetings and interviews with our campaigners and government representatives.
