Germany Meets Slovenia: A Forum for Young Leaders (GMS) is a network of students and young professionals who have an interest in exploring and strengthening relations between Germany and Slovenia.

ICD Weeklong Seminars are targeted at students and young professionals with an active interest in Germany and Slovenia.

About GMS Weeklong Seminars »
Weeklong Seminars are held every 4-6 months and consist of 4-5 day programs of lectures, seminars, and workshops, together with cultural and social activities. The Seminars aim to give the participants an insight into key perspectives on German-Slovenian relations, and to introduce them to a network of like-minded individuals. Speakers during the seminars include individuals from the fields of politics, diplomacy, academia, culture & the arts, civil society, and the private sector. Once individuals have taken part in a GMS Weeklong Seminar and joined the forum, they become a part of the ICD’s network, which facilitates communication between like-minded individuals across the world.

Once they have joined the GMS Forum, members are supported by the ICD in organizing leadership initiatives and conducting academic research whilst they are also invited to join the ICD Online Forum - enabling them to share information and communicate with like-minded individuals across the world.
