Who we are
Global Zero is the international movement for the elimination of nuclear weapons.
Powered by a visionary group of 300 international leaders and experts who support our bold, step-by-step plan to eliminate all nuclear weapons by 2030, the relentless creativity, energy and optimism of young people and half a million citizens worldwide, Global Zero is challenging the 20th century idea of basing national security on the threat of mass destruction – and together we are making real progress on the road to global zero.
Global Zero leaders understand that the only way to eliminate the nuclear threat – including proliferation and nuclear terrorism – is to stop the spread of nuclear weapons, secure all nuclear materials and eliminate all nuclear weapons: global zero.
We’ve spent years building a nonpartisan, international community of influential political, military, business, civic and faith leaders – matched by a powerful global grassroots movement. We’re not tilting at windmills. We’ve got a plan. And it’s backed by experts and leading newspapers worldwide. The challenge now is getting world leaders to act on it – and only unified, international public pressure can create the necessary political will to make it happen.
So we’re taking that challenge head on and working hard to build the movement. We’re signing up more and more activists, cranking up our public mobilization and sharing our vision for a world without nuclear weapons with opinion-leaders and decision-makers.
Passionate and dedicated activists are reaching out to new communities to help expand our efforts and intensify the fight. We’re nimble in the face of new challenges and opportunities, and refuse to surrender to the minority of fanatic skeptics who insist the world cannot change.
This movement is propelled forward by your commitment to a better, safer tomorrow.
