What is Young Bled Strategic Forum?

The Young Bled Strategic Forum is a unique meeting place for diverse young leaders, offering them a platform to share their visions, exchange ideas and network with other prominent young politicians, activists, diplomats and academic from all over the world. Each year, it attracts a group of young leaders and engages them in interactive discussions on pressing challenges and addresses inventive approaches to developing creative solutions. As a generator of ideas, the Young Bled Strategic Forum has become an engine of change.

The Young Bled Strategic Forum model is growing and changing every year. Topics change and ideas evolve, but the main objectives of the Young Bled Strategic Forum are clear. Young Bled Strategic Forum aims to bring together the most prominent young leaders from Slovenia and abroad and offer them a creative atmosphere for discussion and networking.


First Young Bled Strategic Forum took place in 2011 under the title ‘The power of the future’. It was established with the aim of bringing together aspiring students and prospective young professionals from the diplomatic, academic, and think-thank fields in both Europe and the Mediterranean region.

Since then the Young Bled Strategic Forum has developed from a one-day side event with a couple of the discussions happening on the outskirts of the Bled Strategic Forum into three-day separate international conference for young participants from all over the world. Young Bled Strategic Forum is a separate event, yet inalienably interwoven with the Bled Strategic Forum.


Although the conference has addressed different topics of discussion throughout the years, the leading vision of the Young Bled Strategic Forum remains the same: to connect eager, motivated young individuals and active citizens coming from different fields of expertise and offer them a cooperative, creative, and motivated environment for discussions and networking.
