Peace in Colombia: From the Impossible to the Possible

images2016 Nobel Peace Prize Days in Oslo, Norway

It’s been a busy weekend in Oslo to say the least! Our Program Director, Joe Underhill has experienced it all. Please see below links to view the different events.

President Santos said in his acceptance speech:
“It is much more difficult to achieve peace than to wage war. The Colombian peace agreement is a ray of hope in a world troubled by so many conflicts and so much intolerance. It proves that what, at first, seems impossible, through perseverance may become possible even in Syria or Yemen or South Sudan.”

We look forward to hosting Colombia’s President and now Nobel Peace Prize Laureate in the near future!
