21 Century Security: Challenges and Solutions – CND & International Peace Bureau Conference
20th October 2019 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pmFree
Our security and well-being are being severely challenged by climate change, the start of a new Cold War and the huge and widening gap between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have-nots’. The systematic destruction of arms control treaties and disregard for international law by some world leaders have led to a new nuclear arms race and widespread concerns about national and global security. These problems are interlinked with a growth in the politics of nationalism, self-protection and prejudice. This meeting, jointly organised by CND and the IPB, will feature activists and experts from around the world, providing a global take on the problems we are facing.
To ensure our survival, humanity must come together, organise and cooperate on a global scale never seen before. Citizen activists of the world can show the way and modern communications technologies can help us achieve a global voice. But we must be aware of what we are facing and we must start now.
