Aspen Young Leaders Program, October 2017

15. October - 18. October 2017

Are you a successful professional, aged 25-40, coming from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland or Slovakia? Then join our program for exceptional and open-minded leaders interested in tackling current social and political challenges. Or do you know someone like that? Then nominate her/him!

The Aspen Young Leaders Program is designed for emerging leaders (aged 25–40) from Central Europe, in various professions such as politics, business, public administration, non-profit, the arts or sports. The Program’s main goal is to encourage its participants to reflect on the fundamental qualities that make a successful leader in today’s world. It also aims to help young Central Europeans network and discuss issues critical for society’s development.

Inspirational, disruptive or deep-diving workshops, moderated discussions and keynotes give the participants the opportunity to explore the challenges and conflicts that leaders must face in deciding policies and strategies for their organizations, communities and themselves.


Candidates who meet the criteria and wish to take part in the Program should fill in the application form below. Please include the motivation letter, where you describe all the participation and selection criteria individually. The deadline for submissions is July 23, 2017.
