30th Annual Nobel Peace Prize Forum
Thursday, september 13-15
Augsburg University, Minneapolis, MN
The 30th annual Nobel Peace Prize Forum will honor the work of President Juan M. Santos of Colombia (2016 laureate) and the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (2017 laureate). The forum will explore the tensions between conflict and reconciliation, between justice and forgiveness, between hope and fear. Join us in honoring Nobel Peace Prize laureates who have navigated these paradoxes.
Minnesota United Nations History Project
How have Minnesotans contributed to the United Nations in the past 75 years?
The Minnesota Historical Society has awarded a Minnesota Historical & Cultural Heritage grant to the Citizens for Global Solutions - Minnesota for The Minnesota United Nations History Project. This project aims to create a digitized Minnesota United Nations (UN) History Resource File.
As part of this project, CGS will be collecting and, documenting the work, events, and activities of Minnesotans that have helped fulfill the goals of the UN in addressing contemporary problems.
Do you or someone you know have a story to share? If you know individuals that we should speak to about the history of the UN in Minnesota, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
