This panel discussion (with Q&A) will consider how progress on environmental protection is hampered by armed conflict, nuclear threats, and the massive diversion of resources into weapons and war, and how cooperation between the climate, peace and disarmament movements can amplify our impact and success. We will explore the potential of common security and global governance to foster inter-governmental cooperation in order to more effectively address climate, peace, and disarmament issues. This inter-generational dialogue will bring together youthful energy and innovation with seasoned expertise and experience, actively engaging our audience to build stronger pathways to a peaceful and sustainable future.
