Building bridges for peace and a nuclear-weapons-free world

Report of the European Regional Meeting in Wroclaw, September 21 – 23rd, 2018

07.11.2018 50 representatives from 14 active IPPNW affiliates met in September in Wroclaw, Poland, and discussed - among other topics - a common strategy for the nuclear weapon ban treaty. Other topics were “Seeking Refuge from War”, "Climate Change and the Energy Shift", “Peace and Reconciliation in Central and Eastern Europe “ and “Arms exports and Aiming for Prevention”. It was the first time that IPPNW Europe organised a joint affiliates’ and student representatives' meeting together, and it turned out to be very inspiring and successful.
