INSPIRING PEACEMAKING

2015 NOBEL PEACE PRIZE FORUM
MARCH 6-8, 2015

Under the auspices of the Norwegian Nobel Institute, the Nobel Peace Prize Forum inspires peacemaking by focusing on the work of Nobel Peace Prize winners and leading international peacemakers and peacebuilders.

The 2015 Nobel Peace Prize Forum will concentrate on issues related to sustainable and inclusive peacemaking and peacebuilding.

It will feature the work of 2013 Nobel Laureate, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons(OPCW) and Former United States President and Nobel Laureate Jimmy Carter and his latest book: “A Call to Act: Women, Religion, Violence and Power”.

The Forum will also address critical issues of our time, featuring talks by courageous peacemakers, world leaders, and influential thinkers including Monica McWilliams, Steven Pinker, Imam Muhammad Ashafa and Pastor James Wuye.

Each day, delegates will have the opportunity to participate in smaller dialogue sessions led by international mediation and peacebuilding experts involved with the United Nations and others in situations such as Syria, Libya, Yemen, and the Central African Republic. There will also be sessions dedicated to issues such as Ebola, gun violence in the United States, disarmament, chemical weapons control, sustainable food, food security, climate change, social entrepreneurship, women, peace and security and more.

On Saturday evening March 7th, the Forum will be screening the award winning documentary Food Chains, followed by a conversation with the film’s producers.
