Thor Halvorssen has not been an activist who has simply been happy to sit back and follow the way things have always been done in the past. In fact, the Venezuelan born University of Pennsylvania graduate has consistently worked in new and innovative ways to make sure news of the worst possible human rights abuses are reported to people around the world; Halvorssen also looks for new ways of making sure the human rights activism community as a whole has a voice that is as strong and powerful as possible.
Perhaps the most important contribution made to the global community of human rights activists is the establishment of the Oslo Freedom Forum that has become known as the most important event on the calendar for activists around the world. The Oslo Freedom Forum is a major event that has attracted some of the best known figures in the human rights activism community along with celebrities, politicians, and celebrities. In seeking out new ways of promoting the stories of abuse that leak out of closed societies Thor has looked to work as a link between broadcasters, celebrities, and activists who can work together in a bid to bring as much information to the people of the world as possible.
Activists from various groups are consistently looking for new ways of getting young people involved in the work of human rights groups, which is also a major concern of Thor Halvorssen. The award winning film producer has developed a number of partnerships with different activism and charitable groups, but has also established the Moving Picture Institute that is concerned with bringing human rights based stories to the attention of the world through documentary production; as a well known documentary producer Thor Halvorssen understands how powerful this medium can be in bringing real life stories to the attention of the wider world. The Moving Picture Institute provides funding and various support options for those wishing to bring human rights stories to as many viewers as possible.
