New Zealand as Peacemaker: the Disarmament Story

Thursday 20 September


Gold coin donation


Thu 20 September, 19:00-21:00


Wesley Centre, 100 Thirteenth Ave, Tauranga

New Zealand has long had a remarkable record of promoting peace through disarmament internationally and has become highly respected for its efforts.

We have had a Minister for disarmament from time to time and an Ambassador for Disarmament for several decades.

Her Excellency, Dell Higgie became NZ’s Ambassador for Disarmament in 2009 and has distinguished herself in many ways, including in her promotion of the recent Nuclear Ban Treaty that New Zealand has signed and ratified. Dell Higgie will be talking about what NZ has and could do to promote disarmament, and how we can contribute.
