The Forum for life was established in 2001 and functioned as an informal grouping of individuals and organizations. Initially, this informal cooperation was satisfactory. Over time, there was a need for more intensive and co-operative cooperation, which the model of an informal grouping was insufficient. 

Therefore, on 19 December 2003, Forum for life was established as an organization with its legal personality. On January 17, 2004, was historically the 1st Snem fóra života, o.z. in Rajecke Teplice.
