June 2016 Peace Matters Expedition, an interfaith exploration of peace. The program is offered in partnership the Nobel Peace Prize Forum and delivered with Voyageur Outward Bound.
This June, 12 student leaders will come together to explore the meaning and value of peace across faith traditions as they spend five days on a canoeing and rock climbing expedition in the St. Croix Riverway, Minnesota. After the expedition, students will participate in the Nobel Peace Prize Forum, including an opportunity to collaborate in a dialogue session.
Interfaith dialogue is the positive interaction between people of different religious traditions on doctrine and/or matters of mutual concern in culture or politics. In partnership with the Nobel Peace Prize Forum, the Outward Bound Center for Peacebuilding will offer extraordinary 5-day wilderness expeditions for student leaders representing different faith communities and concerned with the value of peace. Participants for the Peace Matters Expedition will be currently enrolled undergraduate students in U.S. institutions with demonstrated leadership capacity and interest in interfaith dialogue and peacebuilding.
