Security for Whom? The humanitarian and ecological consequences of nuclear weapons

For decades, nuclear weapons have been perpetually inflicting catastrophic harm on (marginalised) communities and the environment across the world. At times when nuclear-armed states are modernising their arsenals, and disarmament seems out of reach, it is fundamentally important to highlight the humanitarian and ecological impact of nuclear weapons use, production, and testing – to remind us of what really keeps us safe.

Financially supported by the Heinrich Böll Foundation, we are working to facilitate exchange between survivors of the use or testing of nuclear weapons, researchers, activists working on the humanitarian and ecological consequences of nuclear weapons, and German policy decision-makers encouraging states – with the goal of contributing to an increased international momentum to face the true costs of nuclear weapons, and to support survivors of the use and testing of nuclear weapons, including within the framework of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
