To mark 75 years since the atomic bombings, Mayors for Peace hosted a peace education webinar with a main theme, “No more Hiroshima! No more Nagasaki!” Participants were young people in member cities both in and outside Japan, as well as their counterparts engaged in peace activities in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. They studied the current international situation surrounding nuclear weapons, gave presentations on their activities, and had discussions with others. The webinar aims to stimulate youth-led peace activities in their cities in support of nuclear weapons abolition.

Below is the video from the webinar.
