Peace & Justice Conversations: Warheads to Windmills

June 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Climate catastrophe and nuclear war are two existential threats we face as a species. The issues are also connected. They are human-engineered problems that reinforce each other and that we have solutions for already – if we can overcome the misinformation, propaganda, and politicians corrupted by profiteering corporations.  How can peace activists, environmentalists and others working for justice work together on strategies that will address both of these crises?

Timmon Wallis is the Executive Director of NuclearBan.US and national coordinator of the Warheads to Windmills Coalition. He has spent his life teaching, writing, directing organizations, and campaigning on peace and environmental issues in colleges, war zones, and governments around the world. He holds a PhD in Peace Studies from Bradford University. He has served as executive director of Nonviolent Peaceforce, and directed peace-building projects in Colombia, Northern Ireland, Kosovo, Chechnya, Croatia, Sri Lanka, and many other places. He has also served as editor of Peace News, as director of the National Peace Council (UK), as international secretary of Peace Brigades International and was the founder and director of Peaceworkers UK. He is the author of Disarming the Nuclear Argument: The Truth About Nuclear Weapons, and Warheads to Windmills: Preventing Climate Catastrophe and Nuclear War.

This event is cosponsored by 350NH and will be hosted by Elisabeth Bialosky, Youth Campaigns Organizer, 350NH
