Germany Meets Slovenia
A Forum for Young Leaders (GMS)
(Berlin, Weeklong Seminar, June 22nd -28th 2011)

Welcome to Germany Meets Slovenia: A Forum for Young Leaders, a program, designed for and aimed at Germans and Slovenians, hosted by the ICD in partnership with the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other leading organizations. The principal focus of “Germany Meets Slovenia: A Forum for Young Leaders” is to develop both a real and a virtual network of young leaders committed to building and sustaining lasting ties between Germany and Slovenia in the fields of politics, academia, science, media, business and culture, thereby strengthening the bilateral relationship. The network is supported through a diverse range of ongoing activity and is highlighted each year by a weeklong study tour for new members, which alternates between Slovenia and Germany.

As an independently developed and organized program, GMS offers a unique opportunity for institutes and companies and their aspiring leaders to come together and foster wider, deeper German-Slovenian relations on a business, cultural and political level. This in turn will develop a wider understanding of intercultural issues, promote personal growth, and contribute to the creation of innovative policy-oriented solutions to issues affecting both countries.

The participants> – Who are the Young Leaders?
Young Leaders can be characterised as the decision makers and opinion leaders of tomorrow. They arise from the public, private, and academic sectors and have a unique vision for the future, as well as the courage and the necessary commitment to realise their ideas. Thus, the Young Leaders feature a strong development potential, as well as the ability to be actively involved in the future formation of society. A fundamental interest in the exchange of culture and ideas is more important than previous contact or experience with the respective countries.

Weeklong Symposiums for Young Leaders
At the heart of the program is the personal exchange at yearly summits. These will take place at regular intervals in both participating nations. A group of 24 individuals (ideally equal numbers of participants 12 from each country) will travel for one week through one of the respective countries. The program of the yearly study tours (each year - 1 in Germany and 1 in Slovenia) consists of multiple components:

* Guest speakers representing business, government, academics and technology;
* Exposure to various aspects of national and regional culture;
* Formal discussions among the participants, with individual participants leading dialogue in their respective fields;
* Informal discussions amongst the group of young leaders;
* A high-profile conference on a carefully selected topic that is both relevant and current.
