World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates
Gangwon Province, South Korea
December 12-14, 2022
The 18th World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates will be held for three days from 12 to 14 December in Pyeongchang, Gangwon Province, house of the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018. The Summit will be composed of diverse activities including panel discussions, forums, Nobel consultations, youth events, and culture activities on peace.
Created by late Nobel Peace Laureate, Mikhail Gorbachev, with clear objectives to contribute to world peace through Nobel Peace Prize winners, the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates took place for the first time in Rome, Italy in 1999. Being held nearly every year in major cities around the world since then, the Summit is one of the most important events that foster peace engagement and humanitarian actions around the world.
The Nobel Peace Laureates, international peace experts and groups, youth and civil society will craft a new vision of peace and conflict resolution with the aim at contributing to the improvement of inter-Korean relations and furthering peace in the Korean Peninsula and the world under the title, ‘Stronger Together.’
‘Leading by Example’ was introduced in 2012 by the Permanent Secretariat of the Summit. This program allows local and international university students to meet with Nobel Peace Laureates and have dialogues on peace. It is an educational program engaging youth in activities that will inspire them to choose peace over conflict, empathy over hatred, and open-mindedness over intolerance. This year, it will put a special emphasis on peace culture and bridge-building role of youth.
