Background

Until March 2016, the close of the Asian fiscal year 2015/2016, ‘Toward A Nuclear Free World’ was a joint media project conducted by Inter Press Service (IPS), global news agency and the Tokyo-based Soka Gakkai International (SGI), a Buddhist association, with members in 192 countries and territories. From 2016, SGI partners with INPS in implementing the media project collaborating with their representatives and organizations in Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Middle East, the Caribbean and Latin America as well as North America.

Since its establishment, SGI has been striving to create global grassroots networks among people committed to nuclear weapons abolition. In September 2007, SGI initiated the People’s Decade for Nuclear Abolition as an international campaign to give voice to the aspirations of ordinary citizens, enabling them to be heard and to shape the international debate.
