Our Activities

The Institut Aspen France organizes meetings on invitation, public events and seminars in a resolutely multidisciplinary spirit. Through dialogue, we aim to grasp the complexity of today’s world and to refocus decision-makers’ vision on the search for the common good.

Invitation-only meetings

Every month, the Institut Aspen France organizes a discussion around a prominent French or foreign intellectual who is relevant to the public debate.

Every two years, Aspen France also holds the Europe-Africa and Europe-Japan meetings, which have become benchmarks in their field and which mobilize a plurality of actors to debate common societal issues.

Public events

Public events organized by Aspen France are accessible to all.

The international forum CityLab was held in Paris in 2017.

The series “Des hommes qui lisent” (Men who Read) will give the floor to great leaders from the political or economic sphere to talk about the literary, philosophical or artistic influences that have shaped their vision of the world and their commitment within society.


The Aspen seminars are as much of an intellectual experience as much a human one: 20 to 25 French and foreign participants meet for three days to reflect collectively on a given theme.
