“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 democratic society not only in Europe. ”

Aspen Institute Central Europe has created a visible footprint in formation of value-based leadership and promotion of innovative approach to policy making. ”

““The change from being Prague based to the wider area of Central and Eastern Europe represents a wonderful opportunity for The Aspen Institute, both in terms of communicating the principles which the Institute stands for, and in gaining a closer understanding of a complex and diverse region. At the same time it represents a great opportunity for the Central and Eastern European people. With their turbulent history and multiple cultures, the countries in the ‘New Europe’ region are in a constant state of change, often facing great difficulties while moving forwards towards a brave new future. By creating a platform for an open-minded dialogue between people in the wider region, the Institute will actively encourage growth in understanding and appreciation of one another and of shared values, while transcending party politics and reaching common ground for the improvement of all.” ”
