Peace Week 2017: Nuclear Free New Zealand

Peace week is celebrating 30 years of New Zealand being Nuclear free.

This week we explored WHY New Zealand is Nuclear Free and the different arguments that support and oppose New Zealand remaining Nuclear Free NZ.

We had a 'moot' that New Zealand should STAY Nuclear Free. Moot is a technical debating term for something that we are going to debate about.

We arranged different statements into two groups. Whether the statement supports NZ remaining Nuclear Free, or whether it negates that NZ should stay Nuclear free (allow Nuclear power).

It was awesome to practice having an opinion about something but backing it up with why we think the way we do and what effect it has on more people than just ourselves.
