Peace Boat’s key messages are peace, friendship, and remembrance of the implications of nuclear weapons and nuclear power. 

The voyage joins with Nobel Peace Laureate ICAN (International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons) in inviting Australia to sign the landmark 2017 Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
