Each year, the Business for Peace Foundation arranges a Summit in Oslo, Norway. The Summit includes keynote presentations, debates, and roundtable discussions featuring business leaders and experts from a variety of fields. Through these dialogues, we hope to build a greater understanding of the strong relationship between business and peace, and the lasting profitability of creating #businessworthy initiatives.


We are proud to hold our annual Business for Peace Award Ceremony and Summit every May. Information about the 2020 Summit will be announced soon.
