Connecting Beyond Borders & Boundaries
Creating a world in which we all flourish
11 December 2018 | Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel | Holbergs Gate 30, 0166 Oslo
We are gathering a group of incredible women who happen to be in Oslo during the days of the Nobel Peace Prize to give a chance to share and inspire each other to go on with the important work of creating a world that is more just, peaceful and in which everyone flourishes.
20:00 Welcome & Meal Begins
20:30 Connecting Norway & Iraq
Is the involvement of more women in peace building and negotiations in conflict situations the solution to a more peaceful global development? Anne-Lene travelled to Bagdad meeting Mawahib Shaibani who contributed to rescue more than 6000 girls and women from ISIS. We will hear their story and the value of connecting as we work together towards peace.
