The mission of every Lions Club in the world is the creation and strengthening of understanding among people in the whole world, humanitarianism and regional, as well as widespread voluntary help. Lions Club Ljubljana is the first and oldest of Slovenia. The Slovenian lionism began in our ranks and that’s why we have a special mission to plant and spread the idea, preserve the good example, care for the development and provide consulting for many Lions Clubs, including the Leo Club Ljubljana.

We’re the oldest club, but we have young ideas and enthusiasm and we take care of the continuous rejuvenation of the club.

We want to remain the example of Slovenian lionism - through results, knowledge about lion’s rules and ethics and strong bonds of friendship within the club.

We’re also holding the leading position on the district level, although we want to promote and preserve the meaning of the lion’s idea in the surrounding areas through “little projects”.

Beside our financial help we can often help with as little as a heartfelt handshake, friendly smile and positive human relationship.

The history of the Lions Club Ljubljana is to a large extent also the history of Slovenian lionism. The first Slovenian Lions Club was established on the initiative of the primordial lion Borut Miklavčiča, who was the consul general of Yugoslavia in Austria in that time and who accepted an invitation to a Lions Club Carinthia evening in Klagenfurt in 1989. He recognised the deep humane core of the movement and the idea, which impressed him, so he started to search for adherents.

27 founding members (some of them moved to another club: Janez Bohorič, today LK Bled; Janko Popovič, today LK Ljubljana Forum; the regretfully deceased Henrik Ubeleis and Zvest Appolonio and two members, who are no longer part of the organisation: Jaka Penca and Matija Å kof) have built the founding ground, established connections to European clubs and started the activities. They’ve built a majestic fortress • in only six years the club grew into a strong district with 20 independent clubs, marked as District 129 in the Lions organisation.

Today Slovenia has 52 clubs with 1500 members and belongs to countries with the highest number of LC members per thousand inhabitants. This number is still growing irrepressibly! A considerable fact hereby is that every fifth Slovenian Lions organisation member is a woman!

Furthermore, the Slovenian Lions founded the first LC in Bosnia & Herzegovina and Macedonia in the time of the war in Yugoslavia. In cooperation with Croatian Lions we still support the development of new clubs in these states, and this year we received the »Coordinating Lion« for the development of lionism in Serbia and Montenegro. We transfer our experience to all Lions of Central and East Europe.
