Webinar 25 May. Nuclear Free Local Authorities join with local governments to support UN Treaty on Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons

The Chair of the Nuclear Free Local Authorities will join a line-up of
distinguished speakers on a webinar (25 May) to promote local government
engagement with a historic nuclear disarmament conference in Vienna next
month. The new European Chapter of Mayors for Peace is organising the
webinar ‘Nuclear Disarmament and International Security: The role of
local governments and peace municipalism’ to raise awareness of the
importance of the First Meeting of the States Parties to the UN Treaty on
the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, which will be held in Vienna between 21
– 23 June, and to explain how local authorities can contribute to the
peace process.

Like Mayors for Peace, the NFLA are members of ICAN, the
International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, a global coalition of
civil society and faith groups, medics, scientists and atomic bomb
survivors, which in July 2017 persuaded 122 UN member states to adopt the
nuclear weapon ban treaty. In January 2021, this entered into force when
over 50 states had signed and ratified it, making nuclear weapons illegal
under international law for the first time.
