Count the Nuclear Weapons Money action will take place in October 2019.

One trillion dollars

is being spent to modernize the nuclear arsenals of nine countries over the next 10 years.

We're going to show the scale

of this investment and how it could be devoted to peace and humanitarian needs, rather than the threat of nuclear annihilation

while governments meet at the United Nations

for United Nations Disarmament Week and the UN General Assembly, Oct 24-30, 2019.

We’re going to count the money

by hand, $100million per minute in $1million dollar notes, in front of the United Nations and at other publicly visible places in New York City. Counting will take 7 days and nights.

You can help!

Join a team of two to count for half an hour or more.
Teams will include people of all ages, nations, backgrounds; celebrities, activists, politicians, UN officials, diplomats, artists, religious leaders, sportspeople, refugees and others.

The event will be live–streamed

so that anyone in the world can follow the counting and learn what benefits this money could bring if re-directed to economic, social and environmental needs.

Artists are designing the currency.

Artists from a range of countries are designing the $1 million currency notes.
