It’s May, spring has come and we are delighted to share the fourth episode in the Youth Fusion Elders series, where we engage the long-time and effective leaders of the peace, disarmament and related fields, in a dialogue across generations, topics and disciplines. Through creating a conversation between active youths and their inspiring predecessors, we wish to open up an inclusive space for learning, listening and, above all, sharing.
In the next chapter of the Youth Fusion Elders initiative, we introduce Prof (em) Andreas Nidecker MD, prominent Swiss physician, nuclear disarmer and President of the Basel Peace Office. Youth Fusion Member Arthur Duforest had the pleasure to sit down with Dr Nidecker for a dynamic conversation touching upon his experiences of bringing doctors, lawyers, activists and politicians into conversation with each other to promote effective and workable nuclear disarmament initiatives, and his efforts at engaging youths in climate action, nuclear disarmament and the political process.
This episode is available on Spotify, Google Podcast, and a number of other platforms. For a reading summary of the interview go to the blog article here, and visit the project webpage to learn more about our Elders initiative.
