What We Do
Science for Peace is a charitable organization dedicated to popular education and research on the intersections of demilitarization, decarbonization and social justice.
Science for Peace synthesizes scientific knowledge to inform and change public policy. Science for Peace members focus, today as in the past, on the elimination of nuclear weapons and the prevention of nuclear war.
In response to the threat posed by the climate emergency, Science for Peace has adopted a program for this decisive decade that explores and publicizes the mutually reinforcing relationship- between militarism and global warming and, conversely, between demilitarization and decarbonization.
