THE CRANS MONTANA FORUM SINCE 1986...


The Crans Montana Forum is a Non-Governmental International Organization established since 1986. The Founding Fathers' philosophy has always been to build a better World, “Towards a more Humane World”.

The Crans Montana Forum is closely working with all major Governments, International Bodies, International Organizations such as the UN, UNESCO, UNIDO, FAO, the EUROPEAN UNION, the NATO, the COUNCIL OF EUROPE, OFID and naturally numerous NGOs.

The Crans Montana Forum encourages International Cooperation and works to promote best practices to ensure a permanent dialogue between all those who handle high-level responsibilities around the World.

The Forum organises three to four events per year, gathering key decision makers coming from more than 100 countries to address all major social, economic and security issues in a private and informal atmosphere.

The Forums are organised worldwide (Brussels, Geneva, Rabat, Dakhla, Vienna, Barcelona, Crans-Montana, Bucharest, Baku, Zagreb, Roma, Sarajevo, Tirana, Athens, Malta, Bahrain etc.) and represent unique opportunities for Businesses and Government Officials to network and strengthen relationship with old and potential partners.
