Pugwash Masonic Lodge
14 Victoria Street, Pugwash
Presentation by Sandra Butcher, Director of the Pugwash History Project.
"What Pugwash Means to the World"
First considered a hoax, Cyrus Eaton’s invitation to host the meeting of scientists from East and West, called for in the Russell-Einstein Manifesto, helped to set in motion events that reshaped the course of the nuclear age, and made the world a safer place. The hospitality of Eaton and the townspeople of Pugwash fostered exactly the right environment at exactly the right time, and a new form of ‘transnational’ organisation was launched. The name Pugwash is now synonymous internationally with scientific responsibility, integrity, and the pursuit of peaceful resolution to conflicts. This talk will trace the events that led from Pugwash 1957 to the 1995 Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo, and will provide anecdotes from this amazing history.
This presentation is free of charge and open to the public. We hope to see you there!

PUBLIC FORUM – EVERYONE WELCOME
Communicating the Urgency of Nuclear Disarmament
(Pugwash District High School, Village of Pugwash, Nova Scotia)
This is a free public forum to develop a plan to communicate the urgency of universal nuclear disarmament. The forum will begin with a discussion about nuclear disarmament from international experts followed by a working group session between experts and audience members. The public is encouraged to participate and discuss how we can communicate the urgency of nuclear disarmament and work together for world peace.
With an awareness that staged universal nuclear disarmament is mandatory as an international goal and with a a focus on the Canadian perspective, we will develop a new Call to Canadians.
Come for the morning, the afternoon, or all day!
