The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), of which Irish CND is a partner organisation, will host a Civil Society Forum in Vienna on 6 – 7 December 2014, immediately before the Inter-governmental Conference, aiming to “capitalise on the momentum and to energise, educate and demonstrate the unity of civil society.”

The power of civil society in creating the conditions for political breakthroughs must not be underestimated, and now more than ever, it’s time to show the unity of NGOs, international organisations and other coalitions in favour of banning nuclear weapons.
