This campaign was launched by the Northeast Asian network of GPPAC and is organised by Peace Boat and JALISA.

Peace Boat is a Japan-based international non-governmental and non-profit organization that works to promote peace, human rights, equal and sustainable development and respect for the environment. Peace Boat seeks to create awareness and action based on effecting positive social and political change in the world. We pursue this through the organization of global educational programmes, responsible travel, cooperative projects and advocacy activities. These activities are carried out on a partnership basis with other civil society organizations and communities in Japan, Northeast Asia, and around the world.
Peace Boat carries out its main activities through a chartered passenger ship that travels the world on peace voyages. The ship creates a neutral, mobile space and enables people to engage across borders in dialogue and mutual cooperation at sea, and in the ports that we visit.

The Japan Lawyers International Solidarity Association (JALISA) was founded in 1957. 
Recognizing the perilous situations in the world today, i.e. the continued presence of nuclear weapons and military blocks in spite of the end of the cold war, and the pursuance of profits by giant capitals etc., threatening the people's existence worthy of human dignity on a global scale, and being caused by the policy of the governments concerned, the Association deems it its grave mission to eradicate such threats and in justice.
As a member of IADL (The International Association of Democratic Lawyers), the Association engages in international solidarity activities in cooperation with other democratic lawyer organizations, taking a role as an interface to link various domestic activities for peace, democracy and human rights on an international level. Furthermore, as lawyers of Japan, the only A-bombed country in the world, JALISA also pursues efforts for the elimination of nuclear weapons.

This campaign was launched in 2005 through the activities of the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict (GPPAC), an international network of NGOs working in the field of conflict prevention.
