Event Details

 

2013 Nobel Peace Prize Forum

Featuring Nobel Peace Prize winners Tawakkol Karman and Muhammad Yunus

The Nobel Peace Prize Forum is a premier international event designed to inspire peacemaking, broadly defined. For 25 years the Forum has probed the deep questions of peace and conflict. It is not a “sit and listen” conference. In the physical presence of a Peace Prize winner, attendees hear firsthand of the Laureate’s work, struggles and triumphs, and they have opportunities to ask questions and interact with the Laureate in a dynamic setting.

Organizer

Nobel Peace Prize Forum

Imagine standing in an auditorium singing freedom songs with Nobel Laureate Tawakkol Karman and then participating in Q&A with people from five continents. Imagine hearing Muhammad Yunus call for putting poverty in a museum and then discussing with your seatmate whether this is possible. Imagine engaging in a live web-based video session with participants in Tunisia, Egypt and Yemen to learn how the technology revolution undergirds the Arab Spring.

The Nobel Peace Prize Forum exists for just one reason: to inspire peacemaking by celebrating the work of Nobel Peace Prize winners. A unique gift from the Norwegian Nobel Institute, who administers the Nobel Peace Prize, makes it all possible: the Forum is the Institute’s only program or affiliation outside of Norway.
