Aspen Ideas Festival Young Adult Forum

THIS EVENT IS NOT OPEN TO ADULTS OVER 21 YEARS OF AGE.
We’ve selected some of the brightest minds on the Ideas Festival stage to participate in an afternoon of Big Ideas for young people: an interactive afternoon that will include debates, performances, poetry, presentations and interactive sessions. We’ll tackle questions like how do non-conformists move the world? We’ll consider empowerment issues like how to use the Youth Voice to start a movement, and discuss why the young vote is so critical. Professors, poets, scholars, activities, writers and legislators will spend an afternoon with our young people to spark new ideas and inspire action.
