The Nansen Center for Peace and Dialogue is launching Lillehammer Dialogue City, which will open June 18th 2018.
100 years after the end of World War 1, NCPD wishes to invite the world to an international peace conference. The conference will finish on midsummer’s eve, with a traditional Norwegian midsummer’s eve celebration at the picturesque outdoor museum Maihaugen.
Participants will include politicians, researchers, organisations and other peace activists. The main topic of discussion is how using dialogue as a tool can aid peace processes. The overall aim is to actively support ongoing peace processes through dialogue. We also want to increase academic knowledge on dialogue and peace work, and mark the centenary of the first World War.
Interest in dialogue as a tool to facilitate peace talks is steadily increasing amongst peace workers. Peace workers will be able to use Lillehammer Dialogue City as a yearly get-together to discuss and exchange knowledge on peace work and dialogue.
The program consists of a main conference and several smaller events, such as workshops, seminars and cultural happenings.
