15th Bled Strategic Forum starts in

Bled Strategic Forum 2020

The 15th Bled Strategic Forum international conference will take place on Monday, 31 August 2020 in Bled, Slovenia. A one-day event will run under the title “Challenges and Opportunities in the Post-COVID–19 World; Neighbours – Regions – Global World: Partners or Rivals?” The conference will be organised as a hybrid event, with a high-level segment taking place on-site while some discussions will be held online. In addition to the familiar livestreamed sessions, a strong digital component of this year’s conference will open the possibility of online participation allowing us to host speakers who are unable to travel to Bled in person, and to stimulate virtual audience engagement.

The favourable epidemiological situation led to the easing of some of the measures to contain and control COVID-19, but they could not be lifted in full and some of the general and specific measures, including those related to in-door gatherings, will continue to apply also in the following months.
