Britain’s nuclear weapons potentially have immense humanitarian, environmental, political, and economic consequences and with a government decision on the future of our current system, Trident, looming in 2016, we want to make this a national issue among young people.
WMD Awareness works to give young adults in Britain, the ones who will be affected by this decision, a voice in this debate by offering engaging and informative resources and concrete opportunities to get involved and make their voice heard.
We work with our team of young Ambassadors from around the country, using a combination of creative grassroots approaches that expand Ambassadors’ skill-sets, involve other members of the public and create a positive, community atmosphere.
We offer training and opportunities to make films, organise events such as film screenings, write articles and organise our social media as well as and lobbying decision-makers in and around Parliament.
WMD Awareness believes that this generation of young people can make change happen on the issues they care about.
