Announcement of the 10th General Conference of Mayors for Peace

October 19 - 20, 2022 [Hiroshima]

After multiple postponements beginning in August 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are pleased to announce that the 10th General Conference of Mayors for Peace will be held in Hiroshima City on Wednesday, October 19 and Thursday, October 20, 2022.

Internationally, with the escalating situation in Ukraine, the threat of nuclear weapon use is at an all-time high. In addition, with the first Meeting of States Parties to the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and the 10th NPT Review Conference respectively taking place this month and in August, the international situation surrounding nuclear weapons is in a state of flux and initiatives toward their abolition have never been more important.

In the midst of all this, our General Conference aims to commemorate the 40-year anniversary of the establishment of Mayors for Peace while discussing the future initiatives of member cities working toward the creation of a peaceful future free from nuclear weapons.
