On Friday April 30th, Dr Bill Williams, President of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW), will visit our school. During his visit, he will present an online session through Elluminate, from 12.00 midday – to 1.00pm (Melbourne, Australia, GMT +10).
Dr Williams will talk about how nukes work, where they came from, how they’ve been used, what they do, where they’re at now, how we’ve got rid of lots already,what we need to do – together – to get rid of the lot of them and fast.He will emphasise the global nature of the threat, including the climate effects of nuclear war, affecting earth’s temperature and the knock-on effects on farming, food production and famine.
Dr Williams is aiming his presentation at students from year 5 – 12. He is a dynamic presenter with a depth of experience and knowledge and he welcomes input throughout his presentation. This is an exciting opportunity for students to get a basic understanding of the issues involved with nuclear disarmament and the part they can play in taking a stand against the existence of nuclear weapons. I highly reccomend this presentation to students and adults alike.
