Alyn Ware received the Right Livelihood Award in 2009 for leading initiatives in peace education and nuclear abolition in his native New Zealand and around the world for the past twenty-five years. Democracy Now! met up with him at the 2010 Right Livelihood Awards in Bonn, Germany.

Alyn Ware was active in the campaign to prohibit nuclear weapons in New Zealand, before serving as the World Court Project U.N. Coordinator which achieved a historic ruling from the World Court on the illegality of nuclear weapons. Ware has led efforts to implement the World Court’s decision, including drafting resolutions adopted by the U.N.. He brought together a group of experts to prepare a draft treaty on nuclear abolition which is now being promoted by the U.N. Secretary General, and engaged parliamentarians around the world through Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-proliferation and Disarmament.
