Leeds Student/ Young Pugwash are holding their first conference on 11th November, titled “Disarmament and Arms Control in a Changing World”. Admission is free.

Leeds Student / Young Pugwash (Leeds SYP) invites you to our first conference which will address the current challenges in disarmament and arms control in the context of the social and environmental changes that will undoubtedly shape the next decades.

Join us for this event to discuss pressing international issues and to engage with an interdisciplinary network of students, early career researchers and distinguished scholars.

• Advanced Weapons Systems;
