Almost eight billion stories

Since its establishment, the United Nations has been seeking to eliminate all weapons of mass destruction, especially the deadliest and most indiscriminate – nuclear weapons. Nearly 70 years ago, the UN General Assembly’s first resolution, adopted on 24 January 1946, established the goal of eliminating all nuclear weapons and other weapons “adaptable to mass destruction”. Nuclear weapons remain an apocalyptic threat. 

In recognition of the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the first resolution of the UN General Assembly, the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs launched a UN Poster for Peace Contest. The contest aimed to raise awareness on the need for nuclear disarmament, to promote the work of the United Nations and its disarmament efforts, and to inspire citizens across the globe to add their voices, and use their artistic talents, in working for a world free of nuclear weapons.
