Join #peaceitforward campaign, tell world how you build peace

Participate in Feb. 24 photo shoot to tell the world how you foster peace building

JennaJoin the Nobel Peace Prize Forum #peaceitforward campaign to tell the world how you build peace.

You’ll become part of an international video and social media campaign in partnership with the internationally renowned Robert Fogarty of DearWorld.me, a portrait project that unites people through pictures, to raise awareness and grow involvement in peacemaking. In addition the video will be shown to an international audience at the Nobel Peace Prize Forum being held from March 6-8 in Minneapolis.

To become part of the campaign, simply stop by Augsburg College to have your photo taken. Be ready to answer the question of how you build peace and how you make a difference. Maybe you serve meals to the hungry, mentor children or serve on a nonprofit community board. Perhaps you work as part of a restorative justice program, are in a Rotary group that conducts projects across the globe, or help out an elderly neighbor. Peace building takes on many forms, small and large, and we want to capture what you do that makes a difference in your community, your state, our world.

A photographer will take a professional-quality, digital photo and a photo with your cell phone that you can post to social media. It’s your chance to tell the world why peace matters.
