Publisert: 10. juni 2022

Insight and inspiration are vital for the important mission for peace through awareness and action to minimize the threats from nuclear weapons to people and our planet. How do we verify and respond to the complex reality of nuclear weapons and the humanitarian consequences? How can innovative technologies engage on a personal level and in society at large?
