ICAN – the Vienna conference and next steps

September 19 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm


The next steps towards the abolition of nuclear weapons.

The Labor Party agreed to sign the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) while in opposition but has not yet done so. What is ICAN doing and what can we do to make this happen?

Australian ICAN delegates were at recent global conferences: in Vienna in June about the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) and in New York in August at the UN conference on the Treaty on Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. Different conferences with different outcomes: what is next?

The speakers are: Professor Tilman Ruff AO is an infectious diseases and public health expert who has focused his efforts on the prohibition of nuclear weapons for decades. He is one of the co-founders of ICAN.

Jemila Rushton is the acting director for ICAN Australia. She is leading several ICAN campaigns in Australia and overseas.

There will be time for questions.
