Can Aspen save the world?
The Aspen Ideas Festival (AIF)2010 is aiming to do just that. The 6th annual AIF is taking place RIGHT NOW in our little mountain hamlet, Aspen, Colorado. AIF describes itself as "a conversation-packed exploration of some of the most important ideas and pressing issues we face" . We being --mankind as a species and earth as a planet. AIF 2010 is presented by The Aspen Institute and Atlantic Magazine.
AspenSpin is still on hiatus in California, so we are not actually attending this fantastic event, however we are covering it via the interwebs. While we normally like to get the "inside information" and "super-sick photos" for all Aspen events, this time.... we are on the outside looking in.... its still fascinating none the less. AIF brings together thought leaders from around the globe to chat, network and hopefully change the world. Topics include World Affairs, Arts and Culture, The American Agenda, The environment and sustainability. AIF networks a bunch of incredibly smart, well connected, affluent people. Hopefully they will find the solution the the world's problems, and share it with the rest of us ASAP.
