High-School Students for Peace The High School Students Peace Ambassadors have journeyed from Japan to the UN Office in Geneva every year since 1998 to appeal for the abolition of nuclear weapons and the achievement of world peace. In 2001, they launched the 10,000 High School Students Signature Campaign “to eliminate all nuclear weapons and make a peaceful world.” This campaign originated in Nagasaki and has spread to many places in Japan and overseas. Students at the Motomachi High School of Hiroshima City have pursued art projects since 2007 to convey the sufferings of hibakusha. The students base their work on testimonials and experiences described by the hibakusha. High school students collect signatures for the anti-nuclear campaign in the Hiroshima Memorial Peace Park.

For over six months through the creation of art work, these students vicariously experience for themselves what the hibakusha have gone through.
