The exhibition was formally opened on March 1. Guests at the ceremony included CUHK Provost Benjamin Wah Wan-sang, Dean of Students Dennis Kee-Pui Ng, Office of Student Affairs Director Raymond Leung Yu-chiu, and representatives from SGI-Hong Kong, including General Director John Ng Chor Yuk. In his remarks, Professor Wah said the exhibition's message that nuclear weapons are a threat to human survival offers an invaluable educational experience and reflects humanity's call for nuclear abolition. Professor Wah also stated that the exhibition provides an opportunity for young people to raise their awareness about the reality of war and develop their understanding about the importance of building a culture of dialogue and developing respect for the dignity of life.
