The CND Peace Education programme supports independent thinking and encourages debate, enabling young people to form their own opinions. We do not campaign in schools. We also offer teacher training sessions and CPD on teaching about controversial issues such as war & peace.

Our second annual  Creative Writing Competition closed on June 12th. This year, to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the theme of the competition was "The day the bomb fell..."Click here to find out how to enter and what amazing prizes we're offering winners this year.  The prize ceremony was hosted on July 3rd in the House of Lords, Parliament.
