Students in Hiroshima have been busy folding these messages of hope, which will be joined by an additional 468 cranes –representing each ICAN partner organisation. The 1000th crane will be laid by Hiroshima survivor Setsuko Thurlow, in front of the world's media shortly before she joins ICAN Executive Director Beatrice Fihn on stage to accept the Nobel Peace Prize.

Join in with ICAN by submitting a photo of your own message of peace. Make your own origami crane with your message for Oslo, submit it on social media #EndOfNukes?
