The British Pugwash Group is a membership organisation that brings together scientists and others concerned with international affairs and disarmament. There is a particular focus on encouraging engagement of young people, especially young scientists. It is also the executive arm of British Pugwash, responsible through its Executive Committee for managing projects funded by outside organisations and the ongoing work of the group.
We also host two public education programmes:
WMD Awareness focuses on informing the public, and especially young people, on nuclear weapons issues.
PeaceJam UK works directly with Nobel Peace Laureates through its connection with Joseph Rotblat and the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs, as joint recipients of the 1995 Nobel Peace Prize.
