The Nobel Peace Prize Forum is a unique civic learning experience. Celebrating its 26th year, this dynamic, global event brings Nobel Peace Prize winners, civic leaders, and scholars together with students and other citizens. As the Norwegian Nobel Institute’s only such program or academic affiliation outside of Norway, the Nobel Peace Prize Forum has a special mission: to inspire peacemaking by celebrating the work of Peace Prize winners.
The 2014 Forum will be hosted by Augsburg College in Minneapolis, MN, in partnership with the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School for Public Affairs. The initiative is also sponsored by Concordia College, Pacific Lutheran University, the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management, the University of Minnesota’s College of Biological Sciences, the University of Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment and the University of Minnesota’s School of Public Health. Additional academic partners include Augustana College, Luther College and St. Olaf College. Those colleges who were founded by Norwegian immigrants have played a critical role in the Forum since its inception.
