Nuclear Connections Across Oceania

Coming Together to Address Nuclear Imperialism, Nuclear Colonialism and Their Material Consequences

The Conference

Climate change and the current war in Ukraine have brought nuclear issues back into public awareness–approximately eleven years since the last time nuclear issues filled news headlines with the onset of Tokyo Electric Power Company’s (TEPCO’s) Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, and forty years since the first Te Hui Oranga o te Moana nui a Kiwa (reciprocal conferences where Māori and Pacific Nuclear Free and Independent Pacific [NFIP] activists gathered to address the consequences of nuclear imperialism and nuclear colonialism in the Pacific).

Te Ao O Rongomaraeroa Student Association, Te Ao O Rongomaraeroa National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies, and Kā Rakahau o Te Ao Tūroa Centre for Sustainability at the University of Otago in Ōtepoti Aotearoa will hold a conference in November 25-26 2022 on nuclear issues across Oceania. The conference is free to the public.

The event poster was designed by Pacific Youth for TPNW.

The conference is open to the public and all registration for the conference is free!
