About Us

As intelligent living beings gifted with a moral sense, humans share responsibility to help humans, animals and Earth itself – its air, water, plants, trees – to flourish. Science, as the instrument of reason, should be dedicated to creating peace and justice, thereby nurturing life in human societies, among nations, and in nature. 

Our Vision

Science for Peace is a charitable organization dedicated to popular education and research on the intersections of demilitarization, decarbonization and social justice.

Science for Peace synthesizes scientific knowledge to inform and change public policy. Science for Peace members focus, today as in the past, on the elimination of nuclear weapons and the  prevention of nuclear war. In response to the threat posed by the climate emergency, Science for Peace has adopted a program for this decisive decade that explores and publicizes the mutually reinforcing relationship- between militarism and global warming and, conversely, between demilitarization and decarbonization.

Throughout our history, members have researched, taught, spoken up, and consulted to the government and to the UN. We hold public meetings and forums, engage people through social media, policy briefs and our website, build alliances, and collaborate on campaigns with allied groups.

Meet like-minded and engaged people from a range of academic backgrounds and nonacademic professions. We welcome members from outside academia.

Members can participate in, or generate, coalition building, research, working groups, conferences, and follow-up activities.

Your annual membership fee supports research and education, allowing us to produce materials online and in printed form, and mount forums, workshops and lectures. SfP is a registered charity: memberships and donations are tax deductible. The Join/Donate page has more information on how to join and pay your dues online.

Science for Peace


The goal of a peaceful world ultimately depends on building global cooperation and achieving human security for all, within the regenerative limits of our finite planet.

But humanity currently faces two existential threats to its existence: nuclear annihilation and ecological collapse, the latter arising mainly from global warming and species extinction.
