Summary

The two most pressing threats facing humanity are climate change and the danger of nuclear war. We will bring a group of youth from the pacific to the second meeting of the Nuclear Ban Treaty in New York. Specifically, we will primarily bring Pacific youth, who have experienced the tragic impacts of nuclear weapons and climate change as well as Canadian and American youth. Our events will focus on justice for affected communities, utilizing the creative arts, and regional workshops.

Challenge

Lack of public solidarity & political will left the world with two existential problems: nuclear weapons and climate change. For the first time since the 1980s the United States, and many of its allies, are creating more nuclear weapons, not dismantling them. Simultaneously carbon emissions ceaselessly grow, natural disasters become more unpredictable, and sea levels continue to rise. It's time to reverse the trend.

Solution

Ayanna Pressley once said "Those closest to the pain must be closest to the power." We cannot offer an equitable solution to these twin crises unless those affected most are present. This is why this November, we will bring youth activists to the Second Meeting of State Parties to the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Our youth will advocate for nuclear justice, victim assistance, and environmental remediation by sharing their unique perspectives.

Long-Term Impact

As a long-term impact, we will establish a network for youth from affected communities. As our network of youth activists grows, so does their power and impact. They will utilize the activist space created by Reverse the Trend to share their experiences and highlight their views on the twin existential threats of nuclear weapons and climate change in order to continue building a movement. Our belief is that through collective action these voices can have a greater impact on policy makers.
