The program will include sessions with eminent leaders and experts on Global Zero’s goal of enlisting heads-of-government to hold a Nuclear Weapons Summit to launch the first in history multilateral nuclear arms negotiations; removal of tactical nuclear weapons from Europe; nuclear weapons and the French, Russian, and United States Presidential elections; and online and offline strategies to galvanize the campaign.

Global Zero is the international movement for the elimination of all nuclear weapons. Launched in December 2008, Global Zero has grown to include 300 political, military, business, and civic leaders and more than 400,000 citizens worldwide; developed a step-by-step policy plan to eliminate nuclear weapons in the next two decades; and built an international student movement with 90 campus activist groups in countries as United States of America, Germany, United Kingdom, France, Russia, Pakistan, India, Turkey and Canada.  After participating in Reaching Zero, you will return home and remain in touch with your fellow students to organize events and promote Global Zero locally at your university in concert with the global campaign. To do this you will have support from Global Zero staff around the world and access to a wide range of Global Zero resources. Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to participate in other Global Zero Events to be held in 2012.
