ICAN and ICAN France co-host ICAN Campaign Forum

International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear weapons in Paris 2020

On February 14 and 15, 2020, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear weapons will be hosting an ICAN Campaign Forum in Paris, France. Organised by ICAN and ICAN France, the ICAN Campaign Forum – Paris 2020 will bring together students and ICAN campaigners from around the world to extract lessons from the ICAN’s work in achieving and promoting the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear weapons, and empower participants to get involved in ending nuclear weapons, or take on other challenges facing the world today.

With this Forum, ICAN hopes to further empower the next generation of campaigners to take meaningful action at a local, national and global level on issues that are relevant to them. In recent months, the world has seen the incredible successes of movements led by young people such as the massive climate protests seen around the world as part of Fridays for Future. With the ICAN Campaign Forum – Paris 2020, ICAN hopes to share its own experiences in this field and invite and empower new faces to join the fight to end nuclear weapons.

Medact Gathering 2020

Our theme is “Health Workers As Advocates For Change: What is the role of the health community in tackling the structural barriers that determine health inequality?”

Under this theme we will explore all of our core issues, exploring the interlinked societal and political structures which damage health and discussing the ways in which health workers can use their skills and their social mandate to create change for good.

The gathering will be made up of a range of different sessions covering our key areas of work, including streams on Access to Healthcare, Peace & Security, Climate Justice & Fossil Free Health, Air Pollution, and Economic Justice.

There will be ample opportunity to connect with other Medact Members and supporters, to learn from the campaigning work happening across our movement. You will also have the opportunity to hear from fantastic keynote speakers, attend panel discussions and workshops, as well as gain key skills to further your campaigning work.
