Welcome

WELCOME TO SKOPJE!

The Lions Europa Forum 2018 will take place in Skopje from October 25th to October 27th 2018.

We look forward to welcoming Lions and Leos from all over Europe and from across the world to come in Skopje and to be a part of the very significant Europa Forum in the European Lions’ history because the Lions Europa Forum 2018 is the first Lions Europa Forum with a female International President of Lions Clubs International. Even more, our dear Gudrun Yngvadottir, who will be the first woman International President, is from Europe, from MD 109 Iceland. That should be a major reason to come to Skopje in the biggest number possible from all global Districts and to join us in the expression of our support and pride that the first woman International President is from Europe.

We, Lions members in D 132 Macedonia have a privilege to be the host country of this very significant Europa Forum and we promise that we will do our best to organize the best Forum so far in the LCI`s history with many new and appealing topics and ideas combined with high quality sightseeing and entertaining activities for all participants.

We feel very excited and work relentlessly on the organization of the Europa Forum 2018 for the reason that this is for the first time the Lions from District-132 Macedonia welcome fellow Lions from Europe and the world.

As many of you know, Skopje is the birthplace of Saint Mother Teresa, one of the biggest humanitarian in the world ever. You could visit the Mother Teresa’s memorial house and her monument, located in the center of the city, approximately 200 meters from the main venue, Macedonian Philharmonic.

In 2018 there will be 55 years of devastating earthquake in Skopje, 26.7.1963, which is the reason people from the entire world colluded to help in rebuilding the city and which is why Skopje became the city of world solidarity.



LIONS AWARENESS AND EMPATHY

The Theme “Awareness and Empathy” is a sequel to the themes of previous Europe Forums on 2015 (Sympathy and Friendship), 2016 (United to Serve) and 2017 (Water means Life).

It reflects and determinates the European Lions priorities in the second Lions Century in the world.

Awareness – is awareness for the human needs and feelings of other people, such as knowledge, perception and developing the public awareness for lionism and our mission.

Awareness for achieving the goals of membership growth, leadership enhancement, and donating to LCIF.

Empathy – is capability to understand and share the feelings of other people, especially the feelings of the people who need a help. Serving as more as possible the people`s needs and community through innovative services.
