Contributors to the 2020 Vision Campaign
The 2020 Vision Campaign is largely funded through contributions from our members. Some members make one-off contributions, others pledge financial support for a number of years.
Contributions update July 2012
In the month of July the 2020 Vision Campaign received donations from 30 cities of 3 countries, amounting to a total of € 5439. We would like to extend our gratitude to our member cities for their continuing generosity in supporting our efforts to realize a nuclear-weapon-free world by 2020.
Significant donations were made by our member cities in Belgium, Germany and Luxembourg.
We hope that this positive trend continues for the rest of 2012.
Statements from the first contributors to the 2020 Vision Campaign
Mayor Wim Dries, City of Genk (Belgium)
"As a city council in Belgium, nuclear threats seem to be a thing of a distant past (or future), or from a distant country. But we must remain vigilant and in that regard we can't attain much in isolation. Therefore we support the Network of Mayors for Peace. Our contribution is but a small link in what hopefully becomes a strong chain from grassroot to summit working towards a safe future with no place for nuclear warfare."
Mayor Daniël Termont, City of Gent (Belgium)
"The times have changed. Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, there is no more need for 'mutually assured destruction' - fortunately enough. Time to get rid of all nuclear weapons! Still, not everybody has got the message. More pressure from the public opinion worldwide is needed. Mayors are closest to the people: an association such as 'Mayors for Peace' is our most valuable weapon in the battle for peace! Because together, our voices will sound even louder."
