About This Grant

To support the Nobel Peace Prize Forum, an annual conference held at Augsburg University, to inspire and engage students and citizens to become full participants in peacemaking efforts around the world. Under the auspices of the Norwegian Nobel Institute, the Nobel Peace Prize Forum (NPPF) inspires peacemaking by focusing on the work of Nobel Peace Prize laureates and important international peacemakers and peacebuilders. The NPPF convenes at least 500 peacemakers and peacebuilders in person, including a significant number of youth, who will connect and advance peace and security issues featured by the Forum. It also draws over 1,000 peacemakers from around the world who view NPPF live through conference broadcasts.
