leo europa forum



Leo Europa Forum (LEF) is the annual Leo Convention of European Leos, in which the state and future of the Leo Movement in Europe is discussed. The program consists of serious and fun workshops, a social activity, sightseeing trips, a culinary presentation of countries and, of course, a glamorous gala night. LEF is also the venue of the annual meeting of International Liaison Officers (ILOs) from Europe and the Mediterranean countries. It is a great opportunity to mingle with Leos from other countries, meet old and new friends and learn from each other’s experiences!

Leo Europa Forum History

Leo Europa Forum started with European Leos who organized a few get-togethers in the early 1970’s. The first noted meeting was in France in 1971, which was followed by meeting in Finland in 1972. Then Leos visited the Lions Europa Forum in Berlin in 1974. The first official Leo Europa Forum took place in Vienna in 1976 and hereafter was organized every summer in a different European country. English is the official language of the Forum.


Leo Europa Pre Forum

In addition to LEF which takes place in the summer, there is the so-called Pre-Forum at the beginning of the year. At this weekend, the orga team presents the hotel location and preliminary program to the delegation leaders of the participating countries. Next to the delegation leader meeting, the International Liaison Officers come together for a meeting as well.
