Socrates Program Calendar

Following CDC and WHO guidelines, the Aspen Institute has taken seriously the importance of social distancing, implementing a teleworking policy and canceling or postponing all programs through May 11, 2020. Though we are temporarily hindered from bringing people together to connect, contemplate and challenge each other, we are working hard to plan high-quality seminars in the near future.

We will be closely monitoring the recommendations and guidelines from all relevant governing agencies and will recommence our seminars when it is deemed safe to do so. This calendar will be regularly updated to reflect when events are canceled, postponed, or rescheduled.
