Culture has a key role for democratic development in South-Eastern Europe
Forum Belgrade is building on the success and the supra-regional influence of the first and second Belgrade Forums held in March 2007 and October 2008. It aims to strengthen the dialogue between civil society and political decision-makers.
Forum Belgrade serves as a role model for the whole Balkan region and exemplifies the message that such an activity organised by local civil society initiatives in cooperation with European partners can bring about stabilizing effects and practical change. It shows that collaboration between civil society and (local) authorities works and triggers a snowball effect in the region and beyond. Simultaneously, Forum Belgrade is developing into a permanent initiative constituting an International Advisory Board including political decision-makers and personalities from culture, business and the media from Serbia and Europe.
Forum Belgrade “A Soul for Europe” is an initiative of the local NGO Kulturni Front Beograd in co-operation with the "A Soul for Europe" Initiative.
