Returning inspired and with great enthusiasm from the wonderful “Reaching Zero” Summit at Yale University, Global Zero student leaders have been working very hard on setting up more chapters at universities all over Europe. They have used a variety of outreach methods including writing newspaper articles for the German newspaper “Die Tageszeitung”, Global Zero introductory meetings and local Global Zero blogs to get their message out to their peers. Students also had their first virtual reunion through two European Skype calls that will now take place on a monthly basis.
We recently had our first international Global Zero student reunion with students from Yale visiting London and Berlin as part of their university trip. Furthermore, Global Zero ran a screening and discussion of Countdown to Zero as part of the nuclear festival at Tricycle Theatre in London, and held several presentations at youth organizations and universities in Germany.
All of us here in Europe are very excited about the upcoming campaign on the removal of tactical nuclear weapons from European soil and especially the upcoming video “Dirty little secrets” on the subject, which some of our students have participated in.
If you are in Europe and are interested in setting up a chapter, please send an email to email@example.com.
