In partnership with Norway House, we are excited to share that Bjørn Magnus Jacobsen Ihler—a Norwegian activist, writer, designer, and filmmaker working across mediums to promote peace and human rights in defiance of violent extremism—will be speaking at Norway House on Sunday, June 23, 2019 from 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm on the topic of Finding Peace: A dialogue on community peace-building.
Ihler is a survivor of the Utøya mass shooting on 22 July 2011. Since that horrifying experience, he has used his voice to promote peace and justice all over the world. He currently serves as a Young Leader on the Extremely Together Project at the Kofi Annan Foundation.
In addition, he is a listed speaker for the Human Rights Foundation (who is our international partner for the Human Rights Forum) and spoke at their Oslo Freedom Forum in 2016.
Please visit Norway House’s event page to RSVP to the free session.
This event is brought to us be Heartland Democracy.
