Disarmament for Sustainable Developement

News 28.05.2012

“The Millennium Development Goals cannot be realized while the world squanders its wealth on militarism.”

About 40 of our Laureates and Board members signed an appeal demanding governments to agree on a global plan for disarmament at the Rio+20 conference in June 2012. The idea is that cutting military spending would free up funds that should be used for social, economic and ecological programs instead.
The appeal’s initiators plan to take it to the Rio summit and to present it to governments in the preparatory period.

Signature list as of May 25, 2012.
