Greater Boston PSR (GBPSR) and International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) are pleased to host a very special fifth annual peace and health concert to address the twin existential threats of nuclear war and climate change. The special event will be streamed live on-line, beginning at 7:00pm, on Saturday, October 1st, 2022. This event will feature performances by Longwood Symphony Orchestra musicians and members from the Silkroad Ensemble, an international musical collaborative that was founded by cellist Yo-Yo Ma. Attendance to this virtual event is FREE, but sponsorships on behalf of both our organizations, no matter the amount, will be appreciated and put to good use.

If you are able, please donate to support a sponsorship for this inspiring musical and educational event. As a sponsor, you will not only aid IPPNW’s and GBPSR’s critical work to prevent the threats of nuclear war and climate change, but will be prominently featured in event publicity and to a large, unlimited on-line audience, including healthcare and business leaders. Last year’s live-streamed event included approximately 2,000 attendees.

Our Honorees for 2022 are Professors Alan RobockBrian Toon, and Lili Xia who have pioneered critical research on nuclear winter and the climatic consequences of a limited nuclear conflict. IPPNW and PSR have worked together for decades to further our knowledge of the danger posed by nuclear weapons and to alert the public to this danger. The research from our 2022 Honorees was critical in the creation of our report: Nuclear Famine: Two Billion People at Risk. Over the last decade our work on the global catastrophe that would follow even a “limited” use of nuclear weapons played an important role in building support for the Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

Since there will be no reception, we regret we cannot offer our customary food or drink, but we encourage you to sit back in your home, perhaps with a cocktail in hand, and enjoy the online presentations and performance.
