Connecting changemakers worldwide

Leadership

The Nobel Peace Center wants to provide young, aspiring, visionary changemakers with the inspiration and skills to become effective leaders who can proactively use dialogue to prevent conflict, solve problems and build a better world.

Dialogue

The Nobel Peace Center believes that dialogue and engagement are key to creating skillful changemakers. This platform provides courses, events and dialogue communities to provide you with those skills.

The Ignitor Fellowship

This is a new, highly selective and exciting extracurricular leadership program available to master’s degree students worldwide. Candidates work with our partners for their master’s thesis, addressing great challenges related to peace, dialogue and/or sustainability.
