GLH Field Visit with participants of the UNITAR Nuclear Disarmament and Non-Proliferation Training Programme
Eighteen governmental officials from ten countries, representing mostly ministries of foreign affairs and defense and participating in the UNITAR Nuclear Disarmament Programme 2020 went on a field visit led by the GLH secretariat team Nassrine Azimi, Yuko Baba, and Jenny Xin Luan. The visit started at the Hibaku Weeping Willow, closest to the hypocenter among all hibaku-jumoku, and ended at the Hibaku Kurogane Holly at the heart of the Hiroshima Castle. The participants had many questions about how the survivor trees could silently document the history of the atomic bombing, and also preserve the legacy from the environment's perspective.
