2019 Action Forum Livestreams
Wednesday, July 24, 2019 1:00PM – 2:30PM MDT
Whether literal or conceptual, borders are real and powerful, and constantly evolving, especially as technology leapfrogs, political systems reorder, and business models disrupt. What causes some borders to be drawn while others are erased? What borders preserve what you love and protect what you hold sacred? And which might be holding us back from realizing our shared horizons? Join us for Welcome Remarks by Dan Porterfield, CEO & President of the Aspen Institute, followed by an Introduction from the Vice President, Aspen Global Leadership Network, John Simpkins, and a multi-generational panel on Borders.
