Everything You Treasure: For a World Free From Nuclear Weapons (Ongoing Exhibition)

Nuclear weapons are a continuing and direct threat to all that we, collectively and individually, treasure. They impact us in ways ranging from humanitarian, environmental and economic to medical, generational and spiritual. We ourselves are the solution to the abolition of nuclear weapons which provides an opportunity to transform society, win over violence and establish a culture of peace.

This exhibition examines the historical realities of nuclear weapons use and their existence as a continuing threat to human security and sustainability—a safe and secure life for all. Viewers are invited to reflect on what is most important to them and the need to protect this from nuclear weapons. It xxamines the nuclear weapons issue from 12 perspectives: Humanitarian, Environmental, Medical, Economic, Human Rights, Energy, Scientific, Political, Spiritual, Gender, Generational and Security. Finally, it presents an overview of disarmament achievements. Highlighting that we ourselves are the solution, viewers are invited to share their personal commitment for action toward a nuclear-weapon-free world and the realization of an international treaty to prohibit nuclear weapons.
