2018 Young Adult Forum

Energetic performance and interactive dialogue were part of this year's Young Adult Forum. The Forum returned for its third year on Wednesday, June 27. A collaboration with the Youth & Engagement Programs division of The Aspen Institute, YAF is an afternoon of presentations, small group discussions, performances, and panels. The event explores big ideas and is designed to give youth the opportunity to engage with high-profile festival speakers as well as peers from around the country. The 2018 theme, Amplifying Youth Voice, builds on national and international movements led by young people driving efforts for social innovation, equity, and democracy. Topics like technology and morality were explored during the event.
