Welcome to Canadian Pugwash Group

Education on global security, in a broad sense, is the mandate of Canadian Pugwash, carried out by sponsoring meetings, workshops and roundtables to foster informed discussion of experts, for the purpose of providing information which can be useful in the formation of government policy.

The Pugwash Peace Exchange and Canadian Pugwash co-sponsored a meeting of International Student/Young Pugwash and Canadian Student / Young Pugwash "How Students and Young People can Influence the Peace Agenda in the Next Ten Years."

This summer the Pugwash Peace Exchange hosted a youth workshop in Pugwash NS.   Three leading members of Canadian Pugwash, a co-sponsor, and three Canadian students were participants.

Can our world’s young people make a difference? These young people certainly can!

From July 9th to 11th, the Pugwash Peace Exchange hosted members of International Student Young Pugwash, Canadian Student Young Pugwash and Canada Pugwash Group for the workshop “A Strategy for Student/Young Pugwash: How Students and Young People can Influence the Peace Agenda in the Next Ten Years.”

International Student/Young Pugwash was represented by delegates hailing from such locales as the U.S., the U.K., South Africa, Egypt, the Netherlands, and Canada. These dynamic and highly accomplished individuals worked diligently over the weekend, discussing the role that youth can fulfill in the struggle for peace and nuclear
disarmament.

Ben Rusek, Chair of International Student Young Pugwash found that being in Pugwash made a real difference to his work: “To be in Pugwash, the birthplace of the first Pugwash Conference on Science and World Affairs, was truly inspiring. My colleagues and I believe very firmly that a world without nuclear weapons is not only possible, but necessary.  Being here, and receiving such great support and encouragement from the Pugwash Peace Exchange and from the individual residents of Pugwash who we met, lent additional strength to our goal and our purpose.”
