The East Asia Committee (of Bachelor Students of International Studies, Leiden University) x Peace Boat x #Youth4Disarmament have collaborated to organize a discussion with Ms Mariko Higashino, a second-generation Hibakusha, survivor of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.

The purpose of the event is to raise awareness for the abolition of nuclear weapons and nuclear arms which are still threatening the security of our world today.

The discussion will include the testimony of Ms Higashino, a Q&A session and a paper crane workshop as the paper crane is the symbol of peace in Japan.
