The Art of Peace with Dawn Engle

Dawn Engle is the co-founder and former executive director of the non-profit organization, the PeaceJam Foundation. The PeaceJam program was launched in February 1996 by co-founders Dawn Engle and Ivan Suvanjieff to provide the Nobel Peace Prize Laureates with a programmatic vehicle to use in working together to teach youth the art of peace.

To date, 14 Nobel Peace Laureates, including the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Rigoberta Menchú Tum, President Oscar Arias, Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, Mairead Corrigan Maguire, Betty Williams, President José Ramos-Horta, Tawakkol Karman, Sir Joseph Rotblat (Emeritus), Leymah Gbowee, Jody Williams, Kailash Satyarthi, and Shirin Ebadi, serve as members of the PeaceJam Foundation.

To date, over one million young people from 40 countries around the world have participated in the year long, award-winning PeaceJam curricular program. Engle and her husband Ivan Suvanjieff have been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize seventeen times, and they were leading contenders for the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize. Engle is the co-director of multiple documentaries, including PEACEJAM, and co-author of the book, PeaceJam: A Billion Simple Acts of Peace. She has also directed the award-winning documentary films, Children of the Light, Rivers of Hope, Daughter of the Maya, and Without A Shot Fired which are the first four films in PeaceJam's Nobel Legacy Film Series.
