The Aspen Idea covers the people, programs, and pursuits that embody the work of the Aspen Institute. The Aspen Idea is the magazine of the Aspen Institute. The Aspen Institute mission is twofold: to foster values-based leadership, encouraging individuals to reflect on the ideals and ideas that define a good society, and to provide a neutral and balanced venue for discussing and acting on critical issues. The Aspen Institute does this primarily in four ways: seminars, young-leader fellowships around the globe, policy programs, and public conferences and events.
