As part of the Christchurch City Council Heritage Festival, join us for an annotated film evening where we will celebrate Ōtautahi Christchurch as New Zealand's first Peace City and New Zealand as a nuclear-free nation.
Through film and discussion we will travel the journey as to how these two important milestones, Christchurch as New Zealand's first Peace City and New Zealand as a nuclear free nation for 35 years, were achieved. The role of Cantabrians in these achievements will be highlighted and we will revisit why these issues are important for us in the present day.
A collaboration between Disarmament and Security Centre (DSC) and UCDisarm (Campus Club), the event takes place in the Undercroft Building 101, Puaka-James Hight Building.
