Mayors for Peace
Mayors for Peace is the initiative of the Japanese Mayor of Hiroshima. The campaign is designed to build solidarity and facilitate coordination among the cities that support the program to promote the solidarity of cities toward the total abolition of nuclear weapons.
The primary goal of Mayors for Peace is to raise consciousness internationally regarding nuclear weapons abolition. It is also committed to pursuing lasting world peace by working to address starvation, poverty, refugee welfare, human rights abuses, environmental destruction, and other problems that threaten peaceful coexistence.
There are currently over 2,000 member cities in 127 countries signed to this campaign.
Mayors for Peace is a key international partner in the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons.
MAPW supports the Mayors for Peace campaign and our members have been actively engaging Australian Mayors to sign on to the international network. To learn more visit the Mayors for Peace website.
