UNFOLD ZERO celebrates International Day to Eliminate Nuclear Weapons

 UNFOLD ZERO celebrates International Day to Eliminate Nuclear Weapons 
 
The first International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons is being celebrated at the Basel Peace Office, organised by UNFOLD ZERO and hosted by the United Nations Office of Disarmament Affairs. It was established by UN General Assembly Resolution 68/32 introduced by the Non-Aligned Movement.  

The aim of the day is to enhance ‘public awareness and education about the threat posed to humanity by nuclear weapons and the necessity for their total elimination, in order to mobilize international efforts towards achieving the common goal of a nuclear-weapon-free world.’
 
The day is supported by UNFOLD ZERO, which was launched at the United Nations in New York on 7 May 2014 by a coalition of NGOs with the participation of the United Nations Office of Disarmament Affairs (UNODA). UNFOLD ZERO will provide a platform for governments, parliaments and civil society to post announcements, photos and reports of actions and events to commemorate this day. Already the Inter Parliamentary Union and the US Conference of Mayors have adopted resolutions supporting the International Day.
