Join us on the opening night of the Sustainable Living Festival for an evening of powerful stories from nuclear survivors from Japan and Australia.

Making Waves will combine stories of survival and discussion on strategies to end the nuclear age. Learn how inspiring civil society movements are pressuring elected representatives to reject weapons of mass destruction and ensure a nuclear free future.

The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) won a Nobel Peace Prize in 2017 for their work advocating for a strong and effective nuclear weapon ban treaty. With Australia and Japan yet to sign the new nuclear weapons ban treaty, ICAN’s work continues.

Speakers include:

  • Miyake Nobuo, survivor of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima
  • Hasegawa Hanako and Hasegawa Kenichi, former dairy farmers evacuated from Itate village, Fukushima
  • Karina Lester, Yankunytjatjara-Anangu second-generation nuclear test survivor
  • Scott Ludlam, former federal Senator and ICAN Ambassador

This is a free event but places are limited. Please RSVP to book your places.
