Seven members of Amplify joined the UN conference to negotiate a treaty to prohibit nuclear weapons on 27-31 March 2017 in New York.  We engaged in a wide variety of campaign activities, including meeting with government delegations, partaking in public actions, creating and promoting social media posts, monitoring the discussions, etc.

Prior to the conference, Amplify submitted a working paper entitled “Youth and Multilateral Nuclear Disarmament Negotiations: A Voice to be Heard” (submitted by Nuclear Age Peace Foundation on behalf of Amplify).

Amplify also had an opportunity to deliver statement on Wednesday, 29 March during the discussion on Topic 2: Core prohibitions.  You can watch the statement on our Facebook page.
