Greetings! We’re still riding high on the turnout, energy, and buzz that Muhammad Yunus, Tawakkol Karman, and other tremendous presenters created at the 25th Nobel Peace Prize Forum this spring. Of course, the Forum is only as valuable as the experience of its attendees, so we’d like to send a big thank you to everyone who completed the 2013 Attendee Survey. Your feedback and insights have been exceptionally helpful, and we can’t do this without your participation and insight. We have posted the official “Outcomes Report” on our website, which contains full details, but here are a few highlights:
97% of attendees said that the Forum inspired them to peacemaking, either “significantly” (48%) or “to some degree” (48%).
A record 6,061 people attended one or more of the Forum events in 2013, compared with 4400 people in 2012 (a 36% increase).
The Forum has become an international event, with over 67,000 total livestream views from 52 different countries.
With media coverage increasing by 50%, the general public is seeing the Forum as an important newsworthy event.
That’s it for now, but we’ll have a host of exciting updates for you in coming weeks as we plan the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize Forum.
