13th International Conference
BLED STRATEGIC FORUM

Bridging the Divide

10 – 11 September 2018

Bled, Slovenia

Recent technological advances have helped deepen our understanding of the world and, in certain areas, bring us closer together than ever, but the world remains rife with tensions. The predictions and indeed hope of many political thinkers at the end of the 20th century that access to information would result in greater homogeneity has not materialised. While many believe that facts are objective, we are now learning that in human interactions, distinguishing between facts and perceptions is harder than it seems, that reality is very personal, depending on our cultural experience, traditions and values. How do we distinguish a fact from a perception or a myth? How do we decide that what we see is true and not merely the result of subjective views? And when our realities differ, how do we bridge the divide?

WHAT TO EXPECT

Crossroads of ideas

We bring together over 1000 regional and global actors from the spheres of diplomacy, policy, business, science, and innovation. One stop shop to seek for global answers to the burning challenges of today and tomorrow.

One and only Bled

Our Forum would not be what it is without its famous location. Hosted in the most beautiful alpine resort, the event offers a 2-in-1 deal: magnificent views and meaningful purpose.

Networking

An excellent opportunity for seeking fresh opportunities, starting new partnerships and exchange of ideas between political and business leaders.

Engaging formats

Lean back and relax? Not at the Bled Strategic Forum! A fusion of panels, interviews and interactive formats sparkles vivid and at times heated debates.
