Free School Speakers from CND Peace Education

CND School Speaker addressing assembly at Rainhill High School

Looking for free school speakers? Either as an enrichment activity or linking directly into your subject syllabus such as History or RE?  CND Peace Education (CNDPE) might be able to help.

We offer free school speakers and college speakers on peace and nuclear weapon issues. We don’t campaign, we provide facts to help young people form their own opinions.

Each session lasts about an hour, or can be tailored to fit your timescales.
