C:F Summit lights up the world!

Very often I like to use this quote from Gandhi who says that whatever you do in life may seem insignificant, but it’s very important that YOU do it! In hopeless times we roam, in hectic times we live, but we don’t stop fighting!  What YOU do is simply amazing. Link that to the world. Link that to yourself! Conquer all challenges and all opponents with love! It’s what we already do in our daily lives. It’s because all of us have dreams – dreams for a better world, dreams for a new tomorrow and what we all do is that we truly fight for these dreams and for these ideals. 

Dear summit participants and dear Challenge:Future community members scattered in all corners of the world, another summit is behind us – a summit that was once more packed with so much energy, with so much experiences that each and every participant would need a time to recover and process all the new knowledge being gained, all the new skills, all the new life-changing moments and memories.

Starting in Maribor on 20.09.2013, we moved to Ljubljana (24.09) and we were back in Bled (25-26.09), the city host of the previous two Challenge:Future summits. Bled hosted the last of the series of events within the frames of the Challenge:Future Summit 2013.

C:F Summit day #6 started with the traditional Educators forum. Then, the participants had a great and exciting air time at the adventure Park Straza. Afterwards, it was time for PRME Summit 2013 that took place in Bled’s Festival Hall. The CEEMAN’s PRME summit hosted a themed plenary on innovation altogether with Iztok Seljak, Hidria Board president, prof. Thierry Grange, AACSB, president Grenoble Ecole de Management France and future challengers Chourouk Haisni, student from Morocco and Maris Slezins, Chairman of the World Street Workout & Calisthenics Federation, Latvia.

Part of the super-awesome team that made C:F Summit 2013 possible!

One of the highlights of the evening was also the speech of Dr. Ichak Adizes (Adizes Institute, USA) who shared his experience with all the PRME Summit attendees. “You have to change really fast, otherwise you die slowly, your organization dies, your country dies,” was one of the many messages he addressed to the audience. "Rely on your creative power,” was another strong message addressed by Dr. Jernej Pikalo, Minister of Education and Science, Slovenia who also was guest at the event.

Furthermore, Day #6 of the C:F Summit 2013 hosted the C:F Gala event! So many awards shared and so many emotions embraced!
