Room: H 1028
International Coalition to Ban Uranium Weapons (ICBUW) and the Belgian Coalition for a ban on uranium weapons
The workshop will deal with a fundamental topic linked to (any) war, or military conflict – the devastation of the environment. The speakers will tackle with this topic and the peace movement, the situation in the Middle East, the campaign against uranium weapons, and the case of the firing range in Salto di Quirra. What matters is to demonstrate the interrelationship between these subjects and the urgency to arrive at solutions for the victims of environmental destruction before, during and after conflict using multifaceted arguments, e.g. human rights.
