The Footprints for Peace International Walk towards a Nuclear-Free Future from Geneva to Brussels set off on Sunday, 26 April 2009, on the 23rd anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster: the world's worst ever civil nuclear accident.

En route to their destination they will pass through five countries: Switzerland, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. Individuals are invited to join them along the way, for as long as they like.
