In cooperation with the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, Slovenian think tank Svetilnik organized the 6th Liberal Colloquium titled “Liberalism: Future for Slovenia”. The event, which was held between September 26-28, 2014 at picturesque Lake Bohinj in the heart of the Slovenia’s Julian Alps, was attended by 30 decision and opinion makers from Slovenia with diverse backgrounds, experience, and skills in a pursuit of a more liberal Slovenia.
The event kicked off with a workshop titled “How to Win Supporters, Not Just Arguments” by Robin Koerner of the Blue Republican. After the workshop, the participants were divided into four groups: education, media, NGOs, and politics. Each group of 5 to 8 members was presented with a challenge to develop a proposal of a project to promote ideas or practices of liberalism in Slovenia. The proposal needed to be strategic, including human resources, development, management, coalition, and communication components.
