Welcome, Mayor! Welcome, concerned citizen!
Peace is precious! Cities Are Not Targets!
When a city becomes a battleground, everything generations of mayors and citizens have worked so hard to build is destroyed. When international stability is said to depend on mutual assured destruction, the hostages – cities – are in grave danger.
Mayors for Peace is the leading international organization devoted to protecting cities from the scourge of war and mass destruction.
From 2014 to 2015, the work of the 2020 Vision Campaign is being carried forward through four projects. They are listed in white in the website banner above. Your participation in any one or all four of the projects would be welcomed. Not sure which campaign projects are the ones for you and your city? Check here.
Thank you for your interest. We are all part of the solution!
Peace Declaration 2015 of Mayor Kazumi Matsui of Hiroshima
Today, the 70th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Mayor Kazumi Matsui of Hiroshima delivered this year's Peace Declaration at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Ceremony.
Secretary General of the Conference on Disarmament
"Ideas based on international humanitarian law, human rights and the humanitarian impact of nuclear weapons, focusing particularly on the mass destruction entailed in targeting cities were raised to underline the urgency of concluding an effective international arrangement on NSAs. The seeking of NSAs was not seen as confirming the ongoing possession of nuclear arms but as merely an interim measure pending the elimination of nuclear weapons."
