How will the virtual seminars work?

All seminars will be hosted on, a virtual meeting platform created by Henry Crown Fellow Dan Hoffman built specifically to capture the unique Aspen Seminar experience. Each seminar cohort will be comprised of 10-12 curated participants to maximize diversity of perspectives and experiences and an Aspen moderator who will remain together throughout the week.

Multiple seminar tracks will be available and you will be able to select the time slot that best fits your schedule when you register for the event.

We are excited to offer a Youth Action Forum program concurrently to the adult programming. Youth will be able to participate in plenary sessions, youth specific workshops, and virtual seminar dialogues with their peers. Youth registration opens on Wednesday, March 17 at 10:00 AM ET at the same time as Fellow registration and will be first come, first served. The suggested cost to attend is $500 USD per youth participant and to maximize access we also offer a “pay what you can” option.
