Of the 40+ national Mensa chapters that exist around the world, Mensa Slovenia is one of the youngest. Until 1991, Slovenia was part of former Yugoslavia; Mensa Slovenia was formed in 2002 by a group of former members of Yugoslav Mensa, and in this we were helped substantially by Mensa International. As of today, our members are already more than 270.
We hold regular meetings semimonthly, as well as a number of major events every year (summer picnic, New Year party, ...). Our activities include the exchange of ideas through lectures, discussions, special-interest groups and international gatherings. Subjects discussed range from cats to computers, aviation to X-Files, and any member is welcome to attend and to bring a friend.
What is Mensa?
Mensa was founded in England in 1946 by Roland Berrill, a barrister, and Dr. Lance Ware, a scientist and lawyer. They had the idea of forming a society for bright people, the only qualification for membership of which was a high IQ. The original aims were, as they are today, to create a society that is non-political and free from all racial or religious distinctions. The society welcomes people from every walk of life whose IQ is in the top 2% of the population, with the objective of enjoying each other's company and participating in a wide range of social and cultural activities.
