The 2016 Nuclear Security Summit website is live!
The 2016 Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, DC is only seven weeks away—and now they’ve got a website.
As you may have read on this site, the 2016 Nuclear Security Summit is likely to be the last of its kind—a gathering of global leaders devoted entirely to the issue of improving nuclear security. These summits, which have been held every two years since 2010 as part a process initiated by President Obama, have successfully drawn high-level attention to the crucial issue of nuclear security.
2016’s summit is likely to be the last Nuclear Security Summit and it’s especially significant because nuclear security requires sustained vigilance and continuous progress. That’s why it’s so important that at this year’s summit, our leaders come together around the 5 priorities we lay out here: policy objectives that experts have agreed are essential to ensure that dangerous nuclear materials are kept secure.
Check out the new NSS 2016 website—and share our most recent video or your picture with the hashtag #5Priorities on social media to let our leaders know that we need them to step up on nuclear security at the final Nuclear Security Summit.
