The CRANS MONTANA FORUM is a Non-Governmental International Organization established since 1986, whose mission is to build a better World “Towards a more Humane World”.
The CRANS MONTANA FORUM is closely working with all Governments, specialised Bodies, International & Regional Organizations such as the UN, UNESCO, UNIDO, FAO, the EUROPEAN UNION, the EUROPEAN COMMISSION, the COUNCIL OF EUROPE, OFID… and naturally numerous NGOs.
Its primary aim is to strengthen international cooperation by promoting good practices and allowing a permanent dialogue between those in the public and private sectors who are the real decision-makers on whom the future of our World depends.
