Mayors for Peace
The Mayors for Peace, through close cooperation among international cities, strives to raise international public awareness regarding the need to abolish nuclear weapons and contributes to the realization of genuine and lasting world peace that was established in 1982 at the initiative of then mayor of Hiroshima, Takeshi Araki. Their overall action plan includes establishing Hiroshima-Nagasaki courses in colleges around the world, explore a better relationship between children and electronic media, and to create a framework for protecting children from war. The 2020 Vision Campaign is the primary campaigning body of Mayors for Peace, which arose out of the “Emergency Campaign to ban nuclear weapons” launched in 2003. The message is simple: eliminate the nuclear threat. The 2020 Vision Campaign works to make this goal a reality by 2020, and achieve our vision of a nuclear-free world in which cities are no longer held in jeopardy.
