Strategic Foresight 2023


In this issue we navigate through the challenges of the evolving business landscape amidst the COVID-19 crisis. We also analyse Europe’s accelerated transition towards renewable energy sources due to the conflict in Ukraine, while also highlighting NLB’s pioneering sustainability efforts. Addressing the pressing need to double food production to feed the growing global population, we delve into concerns about food security. On a lighter note, there are some tips on how to become an art collector from those in the know.

Strategic Foresight 2022

our fourth annual run

In this edition of The Adriatic you can read how companies view and define opportunities in the region. Their CEOs discuss the impact of the recent acquisitions on their companies’ business models and talk about the latest trends in finance and energy. The two sectors are going to play a key role in the region engulfed by the burdens of the past and challenges of the future but where life, despite everything, has always been vibrant.

Strategic Foresight 2021

the third annual edition

The reason we try to predict the future is because we look for certainty. People always attempted to foresee the future, but predictions were more than often erroneous. Hence, in the Adriatic Journal edition in front of you, you can read about how the world of today was predicted to be by a chocolate factory from Paris at the beginning of the 20th century. Little did they anticipate all the turmoil that was just around the corner. In fact, they knew as little as we know today what awaits us tomorrow.

Strategic Foresight 2020

the second annual edition

Under the heading of Geopolitics, we looked at views from the past in Serbia, as well as looking ahead in the region, with the then Slovenian minister of foreign affairs and the minister of economy. Under the Business section, we asked ourselves how the economy works now where are the right locations for investment. We focused on high tech trends in the region; should we fear robots in our lives? Under the Living section, we have again chosen the top destinations in the region worth your attention. You are invited to dive into the latest issue of The Adriatic Journal.

Strategic Foresight 2019

the very first edition

The magazine contains the seventh edition of Strategic Foresight, which has become the leading foresight on Western Balkans. Over the last seven years, we noticed there is not enough focus on the region beyond our borders. In the publication, we look at e-mobility developments in Slovenia, which is in full swing. In the living section, we look at the capitals of the region. Belgrade impressed us with its startup culture, Sarajevo with its mix of Western and Balkan charm, and Zagreb with its Christmas market. Ljubljana remains right in size and attractive for young families.
