To mark the entry into force of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons on 22 January, more than 50 cities and municipalities in the Mayors for Peace Alliance raised the Mayors for Peace flag as a sign of their support and informed the public with press releases.

The city of Trier drew attention to the nuclear weapons ban with a particularly creative action: the dance video “Hope is a Decision” celebrated the day of entry into force as a day of joy. You can watch the video here:

Already on the day before the treaty came into force, the IPPNW student group Hannover and ICAN (International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons) in cooperation with the state capital Hannover offered a digital event on the topic “The explosive for the bomb – nuclear power as a precursor technology for nuclear weapons”.

Here you will find an overview of the activities of the member cities united by the wish that the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons will achieve visible nuclear disarmament progress this year.
