The Nobel Peace Prize Forum is a four day international event that inspires peacemaking by celebrating the work of Nobel Peace Prize winners. Attendees may purchase tickets for a single day or for all four days. The 2014 topic is Crossing Boundaries to Create Common Ground.
In probing the questions of peace and conflict, the Forum is not a “sit and listen” experience. During plenary sessions, attendees hear firsthand of the struggles and triumphs of Laureates and other internationally known keynoters. The dynamic Q&A following these presentations engages the global audience in the experience. Just as importantly, attendees participate in highly interactive break-out sessions dedicated to both policy and practice. Robust networking with other attendees from diverse backgrounds adds a highly individual dimension.
Faith and Peace Day - Saturday, March 1st, 9:00 am - 6:00 pm (time subject to change)

The day will start with a keynote address from His Holiness the Dalai Lama, followed by robust break-out sessions and then a final keynote address from Sister Helen Prejean. During the noon hour, attendees de-brief with friends over their own brown bags or at a local restaurant. Discount student price is available to currently enrolled undergraduate or graduate students.
