International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons

September 26

In 2013, the UN General Assembly (UNGA) declared September 26 to be the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons. The aims of the day are to enhance public awareness about the threat posed to humanity by nuclear weapons and the necessity for their total elimination.

The UN General Assembly will hold a High Level Meeting on Oct 2 to commemorate the day. It will be screened on UNTV.

#WeThePeoples2020 is hosting a global civil society webinar on Sep 26 to commemorate the day. It will run in two parts over 10 hours with presentations, video messages, art, music, workshops and panels. Click here for the full program.

UNFOLD ZERO is providing a global platform for Sep 26 actions. These include a social media action to Move the Nuclear Weapons Money and a message to send to your government calling on them to take action for nuclear disarmament at the UN High Level meeting.

Action: Encourage your Prime Minister/President to participate in the UN High-Level Meeting on October 2 and use the occasion to call on nuclear-armed states to pledge to never launch a nuclear war, and to commit to the elimination of nuclear weapons by 2045, the 100th anniversary of the UN.
