The Nobel Peace Prize Forum is excited to announce that youthrive will be the producer of the upcoming Nobel Peace Prize Youth Festival! Together we are continuing a shared tradition of inspiring young people – through celebrating the work of Nobel Peace Prize laureates – to take action locally and globally. The Nobel Peace Prize Festival will be held on the Augsburg College campus in Minneapolis on Friday, March 7th, 2014.
