A productive first day in NYC for the NZ Civil Society Delegation. We received our UN accreditation and passes and then on to the NZ Mission to the United Nations to meet with New Zealand’s Disarmament Ambassador Dell Higgie. This was a productive meeting where we discussed the draft treaty text and what the next few weeks would bring. Then it was on to the ICAN strategy meeting to plan how best to raise public awareness and ensure maximum participation. Excited for the negotiations to begin tomorrow!
