Nobel Week Dialogue 2019

Rock climber Alex Honnold and director Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi come to Nobel Week

What does a rock climber think about when scaling a cliff several hundred meters tall with no ropes? How can you learn to manage fear? And how do you make a film about it - when your subject runs the risk of being severely injured during filming? These questions will be discussed by professional rock climber Alex Honnold and Academy Award-winning director Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi in Gothenburg during Nobel Week Dialogue on 9 December.

New installation at Nobel Prize Museum

On 5 November Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is launching a jewellery installation at Nobel Prize Museum. The collection, which consists of jewellery pieces cast in the shape of medicines, was produced by alumni of Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm and is an effort to make the public aware that millions of people do not have access to vital medicines because these are too expensive.

For the greatest benefit to humankind

What would the world be like without penicillin? What are good examples of discoveries that will decrease our climate impact? How do we help people who have become refugees? These are some of the questions highlighted in the new exhibition ‘For the Greatest Benefit to Humankind’, which opens at Nobel Prize Museum on 5 October.

'Lost and Found'

‘Lost and Found’ is a moving, inspiring story of humanity in the world’s largest refugee camp. The film follows Kamal Hussein, a Rohingya refugee who has dedicated his life to reuniting children with their parents, with the support of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. ‘Lost and Found’, from National Geographic Documentary Films, is the result of a partnership between the Nobel Prize and Academy Award-winning director Orlando von Einsiedel (‘The White Helmets’).
