Nobel Peace Prize Forum coming to Decorah

Posted:

DECORAH (KWWL) -- Luther College in Decorah will host the 23rd annual Nobel Peace Prize Forum in March.  The forum is sponsored by five Midwest liberal arts colleges, all of Norwegian heritage, to recognize Norway's international peace efforts.  The forum is scheduled for March 4-5.   College officials say the forum will focus on the importance of courageous actions in the work of peacemaking.  President Barack Obama, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, has been invited to be the keynote speaker but college officials say they will not know until 48 hours before the event if he will participate.  The forum is the Norwegian-based institute's only such program or academic affiliation outside of Norway.
