Zero World

''The United Nations stands today at a new ground zero - a 'ground zero' for global disarmament, no longer a place of dread but of hope.'' – UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon

WFUNA has implemented the Zero World disarmament program to inspire and mobilize youth in global disarmament efforts. Zero World is a series of annual interactive, online youth competitions focus on different disarmament-related topics.

Zero World was initiated in 2006 by the former Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Honorary President Dr. Hans Blix, and has focused on engaging young people from around the world and of all backgrounds in the fight for arms reduction.


Past Zero World projects include the 2006 and 2008 global student competitions “Students for a Nuclear Free World.” Young people were asked to submit essays, videos and poster designs.

 

  • In 2010, the competition focused on the issues of nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation. WFUNA asked young people to take part in a ‘’Nuclear Button Contest’’ to design their version of the nuclear button that properly represents the gravity of the existence and potential use of these weapons.

 

  • In 2011, we launched the Nuclear Crystal Ball Contest on the topic of nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament. Congratulations to the winner of the Crystal Ball Contest, Daniel Gherca from Romania. See his award-winning poster here
