Call on your local council to support the Nuclear Ban Treaty!

Join us in taking action to encourage your local council to support the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, by joining the ICAN Cities Appeal.

The ICAN Cities Appeal is a grassroots initiative that seeks to build local civil and political support for the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), with the aim of eventually influencing national governments to sign up to the Treaty.

It recognises the importance and power of bringing together people from local communities all around the world, to learn from each other and to raise awareness of the TPNW.

The UK government has to date refused to engage with the TPNW, but that’s not to say that the people across the UK agree with that position: 15 local councils have signed up to support the ICAN Cities Appeal, and 83 cities in the UK are members of Mayors for Peace.

The health community has for decades played a key role in the anti-nuclear movement, raising awareness of the health and environmental impacts of nuclear weapons.

Now it’s time for health workers to use their knowledge, experience and humanitarian commitment to encourage their local councils to announce their support for the TPNW!

Get started with our campaign resources

You can use our campaign map to find out whether your council is already signed up to the TPNW, or if there are other Medact members campaigning near you we can put you in touch with.

If you would be the first Medact member working in your area, then please let us know so that we can add you to the map so others know and can join you.
