Conference Dates: November 15-19, 2015

The 2015 Atlanta Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates is an important global event organized to promote democratic values and to highlight the significance of freedom and peace. The Summit will consist of three and a half days of mini-summits, debates, meetings, workshops, and other activities to address the challenges of global civilization.

Faculty, staff, and students of the University System of Georgia as well as Georgia’s independent colleges are invited to submit presentation proposals that demonstrate relevant research, discovery, ideas, or programs that focus on global impact. Summit sessions will discuss what actions can be taken to support democracy and world peace. The sessions will cover the following topics: civil rights, global peace, nuclear disarmament, human rights, economic prosperity, global health, education, climate change, sustainability, women’s and girl’s empowerment, technology, youth, and poverty.

Eight USG presenters/teams will be chosen to take part in this event. Sessions will take place on November 16, 17, and 18, and each presentation will be 45 minutes. We encourage presentation formats that are engaging to a diverse audience and that include time for questions and answers.
