The Aspen Seminar is the pillar of the common activity of the Aspen International Network, challenging for more than 60 years leaders in all fields to think more critically and deeply about the good society. As it rests on a specific method that requires specialized and top quality moderation, we have the honor of having as moderator Dr. Todd Breyfogle, Director of Seminars for The Aspen Institute US.
Our proven method of text-based dialogue offers participants a debate forum that guides their reflection on values and solidarity into successful and valuable action, as the main thrusts of societal progress. The 20 participants are senior leaders including top corporate executives and leading entrepreneurs, high ranked public leaders and civil society representatives from the European space as well as from the United States, Japan and India. The readings spark discussions and an interest in exploring and debating topics of liberty and equality; ethics and responsibility; faith and spirituality or freedom and dissent – to name just a few. The discussions that will emerge will contribute to enhancing the ability of participants to analyze and tackle with increasingly complex and global situations. In the process, the relevance of these ideas for modern, sustainable, valued-based leadership of organizations will also be discussed.
