Ljubljana Forum

Ljubljana Forum is an annual gathering that combines knowledge and experience of city governance and defines key areas, visions and strategies of the future development of cities.

The aim of Ljubljana Forum is to promote opportunities for future development of cities and metropolitan areas of the South-East European region.

The objective of Ljubljana Forum is to offer a framework for cooperation, networking and learning among various stakeholders, namely political decision-makers, city administration, investors and banks, businesses, civil society, researchers, academics and students, who create future of cities through researching, developing and implementing the best practices of urban development.

Enabling prosperity of cities means creating synergies between Foresight and Urban & Territorial Planning, which was a driving force behind foundation of the Ljubljana Forum in 2011. Two founders of Ljubljana Forum, namely Mr. Blaž GOLOB, Director of the GFS - GoForeSight Institute, and Mr. Miran GAJŠEK, Chief Urban Planner of the City of Ljubljana, created this European & global wide platform of various stakeholders that are important for bringing about prosperity of our cities. Ljubljana Forum is an international gathering of city mayors and city leaders, The Millennium Project, Regional Cooperation Council, European Commission and European Parliament, European Investment Bank, government representatives, industry representatives, R&D and University representatives and civil society partners. From the very beginning, partners of Ljubljana Forum are creating the evolving model of the ''City of the Future''.
