Peace out

Nuclear Button Design Contest

“Peace out Nuclear Weapons”

Nuclear weapons pose a constant threat to global peace and security. World leaders have the ability to detonate a nuclear weapon within minutes with the push of a single button.

The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) has noticed that the traditional “nuclear button” -the button that is pressed to launch a nuclear weapon- is rather boring in design, and doesn’t symbolize the grave consequences of its use. We think you could come up with a more suitable one!

What do you want your world leaders to see when considering pressing the nuclear button?

WFUNA is hosting a global contest for youth to design their version of the nuclear button.

Design a better nuclear button and you could win an Apple iPad!
