Skrevet av Kim Sivertsen .


The 25th Annual Nobel Peace Prize Forum is happening on March 8-10 in Minneapolis!

As the only conference of its kind sponsored by the Norwegian Nobel Institute, the Forum is a unique, multi-day event that brings professionals, academics, and students together to celebrate the work of Nobel Peace Prize winners and the achievements of other leading peacemakers in human rights, business/economics, health & science, and the arts.



This year’s program is the biggest and most dynamic in the Forum’s long history, with a list of visionary speakers that includes Nobel Peace Prize laureates Muhammad Yunus (“Father of Microcredit”) and Tawakkol Karman (Yemeni journalist/activist); global health experts Paul Farmer and Malcolm Potts; and hip hop artists Brother Ali and Omar Offendum.


>> Friday, March 8: Business Day

>> Saturday, March 9: Science & Health Day

>> Sunday, March 10: Global Day


All programming takes place on the campuses of Augsburg College and the University of Minnesota West Bank, and each day is ticketed separately ($10 for students, $40 for the general public).
