Every Second Counts
The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists just announced the Doomsday Clock– 100 seconds til the end. This new metric reflects the urgency and need for action- now.
PAX works to reduce nuclear dangers in a number of ways, including by involving Dutch citizens in shifting the government away from policies that provide legitimacy for the continued possession (and modernisation) of nuclear weapons.
The announcement by the Bulletin reflects just how urgent it is to end the threat of weapons of mass destruction and focus our efforts on solving the much more complicated crisis of climate.
All efforts to move away from Doomsday will require concentrated and consistent efforts by a wide variety of stakeholders. PAX is fortunate to have excellent partners in this effort- from the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize winning International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear weapons to the Dutch Fair Finance Guide– PAX works to prevent humanitarian harm and build a lasting and sustainable peace.
Every second counts.
