Action for Disarmament

10 Things You Can Do!

In a world where weapons small and large remain a threat to humanity, the United Nations' new book "Action for Disarmament: 10 Things You Can Do!" shows youths actionable steps they can take to personally lead the call for disarmament. The book presents a variety of resources for the reader to learn about history and modern uses of weapons: guns, bombs, nuclear and biological weapons.

The reader is encouraged to use that knowledge to foster a dialog with peers, the media and politicians. Suggestions are given for points of discussion as well as methods to tailor them to be concise and have impact. The action-driven format of the book makes it both an excellent primer on disarmament and also one on civic engagement.
