The 9th Asia Europe People’s Forum (AEPF9) took place from 16 to 19 October 2012 in Vientiane, Laos. The AEPF9 tackled four major themes, or People’s Visions, which represent AEPF’s hopes for citizens of the ASEM member countries and the communities they live in. These were:

  • Universal Social Protection and Access to Essential Services;

  • Food Sovereignty and Sustainable Land and Natural Resource Management;

  • Sustainable Energy Production and Use; and

  • Just Work and Sustainable Livelihoods.

Preceding the 9th Asia-Europe People’s Forum, three preparatory workshops in South and South-East Asia on the four themes were held. In Laos, 17 provincial level consultations were held, which contributed to the development of a Lao People’s Vision Statement. These brought together the reflections, aspirations and visions of the Lao people from a wide range of citizen groups, civil society and mass organizations across Lao society; a first in both AEPF and Lao PDR history. They are an important contribution to future dialogues for more equitable development and seen as part of Laos’ commitment to strengthening partnerships for development and increasing people’s participation.

Introduction:

The 9th Asia-Europe People’s Forum (AEPF9) Final Declaration calls the ASEM governments to build a nuclear free world. On “Sustainable Energy Production and Use”, the 5th “Key Recommendation” states: “Commit to progressing, with urgency, to a nuclear power free world. This will require decommissioning existing nuclear power stations, stopping the development of planned power stations and taking forward alternatives.”

During Vientiane AEPF9, an “AEPF No-Nuke Circle” was launched to act on this issue. Workshop participants came from nine Asian and European countries. Representatives of networks from other countries supported this initiative, even if they could not be present at the workshop because of simultaneously held meetings.

The following statement – the « Call for Action » – explains why we engage ourselves in the fight for a nuclear free word.

This statement can be endorsed by organizations, networks and individuals.

We, over 1,000 women and men, representing people’s organisations and citizens from Asia and Europe joined together from 16th to 19th October 2012 in Vientiane, Laos at the 9th Asia Europe People’s Forum under the title “People’s Solidarity against Poverty and for Sustainable Development: Challenging Unjust and Unequal Development, Building States of Citizens for Citizens”. The AEPF9 tackled four major themes, or People’s Visions, which represent AEPF’s hopes for citizens of the ASEM member countries and the communities they live in. These are:

  • Universal Social Protection and Access to Essential Services;

  • Food Sovereignty and Sustainable Land and Natural Resource Management

  • Sustainable Energy Production and Use; and

  • Just Work and Sustainable Livelihoods.

Preceding the 9th Asia-Europe People’s Forum we held three preparatory workshops in South and South-East Asia on our four themes. In Laos, 16 provincial level consultations were held which contributed to the development of a draft Lao People’s Vision Statement. These brought together the reflections, aspirations and visions of the Lao people from a wide range of mass and civil society organisations across Lao society. They are an important contribution to future dialogues for development and seen as part of the Laos’ commitment to strengthening partnerships for development.

A call to social movements, frontline communities
and campaigning networks, and progressive NGOs,
academics and parliamentarians across Asia and Europe:

Join the 9th Asia-Europe People’s Forum
