Just say ‘No’

84 percent of young adults around the world say that it is never acceptable to use nuclear weapons, according to a new poll carried out for the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

The poll surveyed more than 16,000 people aged 20–35 (‘millennials’) in 16 countries and territories, half of them experiencing violent conflict.

83 percent of British millennials said it was never acceptable to use a nuclear weapon, almost exactly the global average.

Just over half of millennials around the world thought it was more likely than not that a nuclear attack would occur in the next decade.
