Two SSS participants, Tony Dischinger `14 and Jordy Barry `15, attended the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize Forum in Minneapolis
"It was truly inspiring. I had an absolutely wonderful experience. I had the opportunity of partaking in two workshops. The first was about the Israeli Palestinian conflict, and how peaceful negotiations are possible. The second was about the psychology behind trauma, and how we as a society can ultimately come together and foster peace instead of relive major atrosities. It really sparked a lot of questions in regards to differing global perspectives, as well as challenged my beliefs. For some ethical dilemmas, I either was forced to think about why I believed what I did, or I thought about different issues in society in a new light. I really enjoyed it!
Thank you for the opportunity!"
