Talking Trident Event Series

In partnership with WMD Awareness, BASIC set up the Talking Trident events series between 2014-2015 in order to encourage a wider public discussion about Trident and prospects for Trident renewal amongst Britain’s young people, encouraging more interaction in this critical issue.

BASIC is developing new approaches to overcome states’ dependency on the doctrine of nuclear deterrence, which blocks global nuclear disarmament and drives proliferation. 

Talking about Trident & the Next Generation of Global Threats

BASIC and WMD Awareness kicked off their Talking Trident: A Conversation with the Next Generation event series on July 9th in Shoreditch in east London. These events are a series of debates being held to give young adults in Britain the opportunity to express their opinions on the issue of nuclear weapons before the government makes a decision on whether to renew its nuclear system, Trident, in 2016.
