The Aspen Institute drives change through dialogue, leadership, and action to help solve the greatest challenges of our time. Aspen Institute experts are leaders in their fields, bringing a wide range of backgrounds and perspectives all aimed at doing the most good for the greatest number of people. They have made it their mission to further the ideals of the Institute.
Aspen Ideas events feature stimulating conversations with some of the brightest, most interesting thinkers and doers. Leaders from around the globe and across many disciplines will engage in deep and inquisitive discussion of the issues that shape our lives and challenge our times.
The Aspen Institute has earned a reputation for gathering diverse, nonpartisan thought leaders, creatives, scholars and members of the public to address some of the world’s most complex problems. But the goal of these convenings is to have an impact beyond the conference room. They are designed to provoke, further and improve actions taken in the real world.
