"UNFOLD ZERO" is a platform for United Nations focused initiatives and actions for the achievement of a nuclear weapons free world
The first International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weaponsis almost here – already this Friday, September 26.
To raise awareness for the day, we’ve launched a global
call for action that anyone, anywhere can join. Learn about it in our new video, share it with your friends, and read on to see what else you can do to support this important day.
WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR SEPTEMBER 26
— Join the global action. Film your friends or people in the streets answering two simple questions: “How many nuclear weapons do you think are in the world?” and “How many should there be?” Send us your video by the end of September. We prepared a manual to help you with filming.
— Organise an event to commemorate the day. Whatever you can think of – debate, film screening, flash mob, public gathering... You can get inspired by what others are planning, and you can also inspire others byannouncing your event.
— Engage your government. A high representative of your country (president, prime minister or foreign minister) will be speaking at the United Nations General Assembly this week. Write to them and ask them to call for the elimination of nuclear weapons in their statement.
— Engage your parliament. Ask your parliamentarians to promote and support the day through motion or statement. Read more on our website.
— Spread the word. Blog about the day, post our video on Facebook and Twitter, and get your local media to cover the day. Share and follow #unfoldzero.
