In 2017, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his contribution to the establishment of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Peace Boat has been participating in ICAN since 2010 and is one of the international steering groups consisting of 10 organizations around the world. The Palsystem Federation joined ICAN in 2018 and is calling for the realization of a world free of nuclear weapons.
