By honoring and educating about their deeds, knowledge of American peacemaking will increase and inspire others. The education program and the creation of a Peace Park in Eugene, Oregon will be national firsts.

The Nobel Project is a grassroots project by Eugene,Oregon Americans intended to educate and benefit all Americans 1) We just completed writing an education program of materials describing the peacemaking deeds of the 23 US Nobel Peace Laureates. These materials are suitable for the elementary, middle school, and high school levels respectively and are available nationwide via our website. 2) Creation of a Peace Park that will honor and recognize the American Nobel Peace Laureates. Visitors and school field trips will learn about ways to end and prevent wars and create the condition leading to peaceful solutions to problems. Small but mighty, this program will benefit all Americans by adding to their knowledge of American peacemaking and who the peacemakers are.
