Through the current political chaos, the threat using nuclear weapons rises. The 2017 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Preparatory Committee hold their event in Vienna, Austria from 2-12 May 2017, and NGOs will participate in the discussions, side events, presentations and exhibitions. The civil society shall take care to investigate the impact of the Agenda 2030, – 17 SDGs and the approach of P.P.P.P.P (Prosperity, People, Planet, Peace, and Partnership) to mitigate this threat and propose methods to prevent such catastrophe. It seems the political establishment is overstrained with its diplomacy and the intellectual “elite” too arrogant rejecting participatory democracy.
