What they say about us
“When I was invited to join the Aspen network, it was one of the turning points of my life. I learned to know a lot of different kinds of people with very similar struggles, and I imagined better what I want to achieve in my life. ”
“Participation in the Aspen Young Leaders Program surprisingly helped me to calm down. I gained perspective and learned to prioritize better. Thanks to that, I am more focused at my work and I feel stronger than before. ”
Mimi Hoang Lan Nguyen
“From the stimulation of the Ideas Festival, to the projects conceived at the Resnick Aspen Action Forum, to deep policy studies done at our roundtables, the Aspen Institute brings together people with different outlooks to search for common ground and make the world a better place. ”
“Aspen is for me the possibility to meet people, who think in a similar, or absolute different way, than me. ”
“Aspen was always able to assemble differently minded people from various fields of activity: politicians, artists, athletes, scientists, innovators, volunteers and businessmen. I believe that this capability will also significantly contribute to the development of a liberal and democratic society not only in Europe. ”
Founder, Chairman of the Supervisory Board & Honorary Board Chairman
“More than 60 years ago, American businessman and philanthropist, Walter Paepcke, founded what would become one of the most respected platforms in the world for truly non-partisan dialogue addressing critical issues facing civil society. ”
Pepper de Callier
“I strongly believe that ideas matter. I am glad that since 2012 the Aspen Institute – as a proven platform where ideas and people meet – has been active also in Central Europe. Aspen Institute Central Europe has created a visible footprint in formation of value-based leadership and promotion of innovative approach to policy making. ”
