Catalyze sarajevo 2020


We’re genuinely disappointed not to be able to host you at Catalyze Sarajevo on March 26, 2020, due to global concerns around the coronavirus (COVID-19). 


Following the recommendations of the Ministry of Health in the Federation of BiH related to the COVID-19 virus, World Chicago together with the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs have made the decision to postpone the conference along with its follow-up activities until later in the year when we are able to find alternative dates. 

A new date will be announced as soon as possible. For all updates about Catalyze Sarajevo 2020 please follow our Facebook page or website


Thank you for your understanding and stay healthy.
