2024 World Conference Against A and H Bombs

August 3 @ 10:00 am - August 9 @ 1:00 pm JST

Hybrid Hybrid Event
The Organizing Committee of the 2024 World Conference against A & H Bombs announced that the World Conference will take place on August 3-9 in Hiroshima and Nagasaki under the theme: “Together with the Hibakusha, let us achieve a nuclear weapon-free, peaceful and just world — for the future of the humankind and our planet”.
This year’s conference, held on the eve of 2025, the 80th anniversary of the atomic bombings, has even greater significance for the realization of the Hibakusha’s wish to achieve a world without nuclear weapons in their lifetime. It also aims to mobilize the Japanese public opinion to make the Japanese government sign and ratify the TPNW and take the lead in the abolition of nuclear weapons. We call for your support and participation in the 2024 World Conference. Some of the events will be live streamed.
The provisional schedule is published below. Please refer to the organiser’s website for updates and registration information.
