GENERAL

 

When will the 2021 Resnick Aspen Action Forum take place?

The Action Forum will be held virtually from Wednesday, July 21 to Sunday, July 25, 2021.

 

Will the Action Forum take place in person or virtually?

As communities around the world continue to grapple with the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, we are planning to host the 2021 Action Forum online from July 21-25, 2021.

 

What kind of programming will be offered?

This program embraces the proximity we each have to our local communities, increases access for people to participate, and creates new opportunities to engage in learning, practicing, and sustaining collective efforts. In addition to classic seminar dialogues and inspiring plenaries, new virtual spaces will allow you to find collaborators, explore issues important to you, and spark innovation as you build your own capacity for collective leadership. We're also excited to expand Youth Action Forum offerings to include youth seminar dialogues, intergenerational plenaries, and collaborative workshops. Check out our Programming Page for more details about this year's session types.

 

When will registration open?

Registration is now open on the AGLN website! You’ll need to log-in to your AGLN profile to access the registration link. The standard registration fee for the Resnick Aspen Action Forum is $500 USD per participant for adults and youth. However, in order to remove cost as a barrier for attendance, we also offer a “pay what you can” option.
