Solidarity will be in focus of BSF this year

The Bled Strategic Forum (BSF), Slovenia's foremost foreign policy event, taking place next week, will focus on solidarity in facing global challenges. Following the devastating floods that hit parts of Slovenia in early August, the organisers decided to incorporate a charitable campaign.

Solidarity for Global Security

The whole concept is geared toward addressing challenges that represent different threats for the broader global community: from climate change to the Russian aggression against Ukraine, the energy and food crises.

Highlighting solidarity, the title was also chosen with Slovenia's upcoming non-permanent membership in the UN Security Council in mind. The campaign that preceded the vote in June has opened Slovenia's foreign policy more broadly to the world, which is reflected in this year's BSF, drawing representatives from all five continents.
