The Aspen Institute is an educational and policy studies organization based in Washington, D.C.. It’s mission is to foster leadership based on enduring values and to provide a nonpartisan venue for dealing with important issues.

“I spent the last 2 days with a truly remarkable group of leaders assembled by the Aspen Institute,” said Antonio.

Topics discussed included conveying civil discourse through stories, how technology and media shape experiences within civil discourse, positive and negative considerations associated with technology and social media, how young people engage in civil discourse and iterate design: deriving to scale, diversity and outcomes.
