The Centre for European Perspective, together with the U. S. Department of State, is organizing another special event in the scope of the project“Enhancing Digital Diplomacy Activities in the Western Balkans and Eastern Europe”. All activities will take place in two locations, our state capital Ljubljana and Bled, between September 9th and September 12th. The four day event will bring together participants from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Georgia, Lithuania, Kosovo, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Slovakia and Ukraine, as well as leading experts in the field of Digital Diplomacy from the U.S. Department of State, academia, private sector and media.

The initiative continues to serve as the hub for education and sharing of best practices in the field of Digital Diplomacy. After two trainings, organized in autumn 2017 and spring 2018, this event will focus on combining all the past and current ideas, knowledge and motivation to build a strong network for the project. It will be up to the old and new participants to BRIDGE different challenges in the field, and contribute to a fruitful program in the future.

The event is also special in two ways, as its activities are included in the Bled Strategic Forum (BSF) and the Young Bled Strategic Forum (YBSF). Experts in the field of Digital Diplomacy will work side by side with the participants of the YBSF assisting them to properly deliver their messages to the target audience. Our project is moving to Bled for the last two days, where the participants will have an opportunity to join some interesting discussions, at one of the biggest international interdisciplinary conferences in Slovenia. Don´t miss our panel discussion titled Digital Bridge: Transformation for Institutional Resilience taking place on Tuesday. Our speakers and programme will remain a secret for now, but follow us on our social media to discover all about it in the next weeks.
