ROM was started in 1999 by a group of young adults associated with Life Center International
(LCI) based in Fužine, Croatia with a vision of investing the values of good leadership in the
lives of emerging leaders in the Balkan region and beyond. From the beginning, ROM has
been an initiative that impacted Southeast Europe for change, with a focus on peace building,
dialogue and reconciliation, as well as on encouraging lasting friendships and leadership with
integrity. The vision and mission of ROM is built on the teachings and example of the person
of Jesus, a unique person who has inspired millions irrespective of their religions or
worldviews. By taking part in the 2020 ROM Gathering you will participate in a unique journey
that will inspire and enrich you, and motivate you to make a positive difference in your country
and community, and become a radical leader in service to others.
At this gathering you will meet an international team of leaders, mentors, speakers and facilitators; all persons of integrity with rich experience in fields of politics, media, business, religion, education, and the arts. The program also includes small group activities, creative workshops, community service projects, excursions; as well as music, games, sports, recreation; time for relaxation and quiet reflection, and much more.
