BACK TO THE CITIES APPEAL

The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) is a coalition of non-governmental organisations in more than one hundred countries promoting adherence to and implementation of the treaty.

ICAN was awarded the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize for our work to raise awareness of the devastating humanitarian impacts of nuclear weapons and for our role in achieving the treaty.
