We are proud to present the 17th Generation of the Aspen Young Leaders Program!

Since its foundation 18 years ago, Aspen Institute Romania has remained committed to promoting and advancing values-based leadership, through our endeavour of investing in the next generation of leaders in our region.

After a very complex selection process, we proudly present the 2024 participants of our flagship leadership program. This year marks a significant milestone as we received a record-breaking number of over 150 applications, showcasing the growing interest and dedication to leadership development within our region.
