Nobel Peace Prize Forum
Each year the Nobel Peace Prize Forum brings together Laureates, world leaders, and accomplished peacemakers with students and community members to advance and educate change agents to carry forward the work and goals, as stated by Alfred Nobel, of promoting “fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.”
The 29th Annual Nobel Peace Prize Forum will take place at Augsburg College in Minneapolis, Minnesota on September 15 – 16, with gun violence being one of its focus areas. The Forum will bring national and local leaders with different views on this topic together to find common ground.
In preparation, the Forum will invite key Minnesota leaders to engage in facilitated higher-level dialogues specifically geared toward developing integrated solutions to gun violence. These dialogues will take place as one of two tracks offered at the Northstar Public Health Conference on Gun Violence, September 13 and 14.
The need for dialogue regarding the contentious issue of gun violence and gun violence prevention is as great as ever, and the Nobel Peace Prize Forum will provide an opportunity to engage in the difficult work of seeking workable policy options.
