  • Objective: Expand ICAN’s network

Nuclear weapons are a global humanitarian threat, and therefore an issue that concerns us all. To demonstrate the broad level of support for a treaty banning nuclear weapons, ICAN aimed to bring participants from a range of various backgrounds to Oslo in March. We are extremely happy to report that a total number of 500 participants from 133 different organisations, including important humanitarian, environmental, disarmament and religious organisations, labour unions, academic institutions and media outlets, decided to join us in Oslo.
