Senzatomica Committee


Disseminate among the younger generation empowerment tools to promote the vision and creation of a world free of nuclear weapons.

Promote advocacy actions to strengthen the work of raising public awareness, as well as institutions, so that the Italian government signs and ratifies the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW).

Promote the debate on the direct correlation between nuclear disarmament and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Senzatomica awareness campaign intends to work for peace education and people’s empowerment so as to foster a public opinion movement aimed at banning the development, testing, possession, stockpiling, use or threat to use nuclear weapons. For the third year, the campaign is being supported through 8×1000 funds from the Istituto Buddista Italiano Soka Gakkai. Over the years, it has raised great interest thanks to its approach aimed to educate about peace and disarmament, promote an inclusive dialogue to transform the human spirit.

One of the main tools of the campaign is the itinerant exhibitionSenzatomica – Transforming the Human Spirit for a World Free from Nuclear Weapons”.

The new exhibition hinges upon the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) and addresses the main topics included in its Preamble, with a view to highlighting the new horizons of world possibilities the Treaty can bring about. The exhibition also aims at informing, stimulating reflection and empowering ordinary people. It is paramount for people to know the truth about nuclear weapons and to understand that it is their right and their duty to express their opinion. Thus they can make their voice heard on an issue that so closely concerns them and they can free their courage and creativity to create an indomitable force for peace. The exhibition itinerary – to be set up in collaboration with local administrations and schools – is designed for people of any age and can be used as a teaching tool.

In order to support the dissemination of peace education and nuclear disarmament in Italian schools, Senzatomica offers a training course to teachers in Italy. This course receives accreditation on the SOFIA portal of the Ministry of Education, therefore teachers attending it will receive training credits.

Senzatomica was awarded the Medaglia di rappresentanza medal by the President of the Italian Republic Giorgio Napolitano.

Because of its efforts to reach a TPNW, ICAN — which Senzatomica has been partner of since it was founded — won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2017. A delegation participated in the awarding ceremony in Oslo in December of that year.
