Previous editions of Creative Forum Ljubljana, targeting the Western Balkans and the Southern Mediterranean, have reaffirmed the large creative potential of the young in the region. Cultural and creative industries employ highly skilled individuals with sufficient knowledge and expertise to envisage and create new products, new services and new ways of working and cooperation. There is nevertheless a perceived lack of managerial skills in the creative sector where more often than not creatives also become executives. The various crises resulting from the pandemic only reinforced the needs for skilled managers that will be able to cope with the ever-changing environment. Creative Forum Ljubljana teamed up with Euro-Mediterranean University (EMUNI) and the IEDC Bled School of Management in order to provide a capacity building program, limited to participants from:
Albania, Algeria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Egypt, Georgia, Israel, Jordan, Kosovo, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Moldova, Montenegro, Morocco, North Macedonia, Palestine, Serbia, Slovenia, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey and Ukraine.
