Forum for Social Transformation
Bringing together Social Reformers who are making change happen in their community, their country.
Forum for Social Transformation is a platform with the goal to transform communities and countries in the Balkans and Eastern Europe through innovative educational programmes and initiatives of individuals and organisations.
We use the term Social Transformation to describe large-scale, systematic social change, which requires a wide range of organisations and activities to come about.
Each year we bring together leaders from a range of countries including Germany and the UK to share experiences, learn together and to develop material for our future work.
Where we work
FST works in a range of countries in East and Central Europe. Our primary focus is the countries whose history includes some or all of the Orthodox Church, the Ottoman Empire, and Communism.
