Dear friends,
UNFOLD ZERO invites you to join this webinar on nuclear risk reduction which is being organised by the Abolition 2000 global network to eliminate nuclear weapons. 

In January 2020, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists set the Doomsday Clock to '100 seconds to Midnight' indicating that humanity is the closest we have ever been to a potential catastrophe from climate change or nuclear weapons use.

Since then, COVID-19 has impacted on nuclear security, tensions between nuclear-armed States have deteriorated, nuclear weapons are being further modernised, the US Senate Armed Services Committee has voted $10 million to resume nuclear tests, and the few other nuclear arms controls that still exist are being further eroded.  

This group of experts (see below) will explore the risks of nuclear weapons use by accident, miscalculation or intent, and the initiatives at national and international levels to reduce these risks. These nuclear-risk reduction initiatives need support from legislators, civil society and like-minded governments.
