In co-operation with the MS Swaminathan Research Foundation, ISYP organized an International consultation on Food security: a great threat to human security, in Chennai, India, from 29 January – 1 February 2007. This brought together over 60 young and senior participants alike to discuss the challenges of global hunger.
International Student/Young Pugwash (ISYP) and Pugwash Netherlands organized two workshops on “New challenges to human security” in Wageningen, the Netherlands from 14-18 June 2006. The choice for this theme emerged from a renewed attention for formulating future areas of intervention by Pugwash. In particular, debate on this issue sought to contribute to find answers to the question of ‘how can organisations such as Pugwash – and its individual members – promote real progress on such issues.
The ISYP workshop took place from 14-16 June 2006. Several of the participants of the ISYP workshop were invited to take part in the subsequent senior Pugwash workshop (from 16-18 June) as well.
