Aspen Institute España and Fundación Cañada Blanch hosted last June, 10 – 12, 2022, the fourth edition of the Aspen – Cañada Blanch Seminar, which will bring together 20 young emergent leaders, ages from 25 to 30, from diferent areas of our society. Under the title “Leadership and Values in Europe”, the seminar will take place in El Saler, Valencia.

Aspen lnstitute España is an independent nonprofit foundation in partnership with Aspen Institute (US). The mission of Aspen España is to promote values-based leadership and public policies. After more than ten years, Aspen Institute España is recognized for the quality of its debates and seminars and its capacity to create a plural and balanced forum for the debate of critical societal issues.

Fundación Cañada-Blach was founded in 1970, thanks to Vicente Cañada Blanch first donation. Its mission is to promote the culture, especially among young students and to carry out cultural activities related to the latest research advantages, philosophy, the social debate and arts, of the Community of Valencia and the UK.

Following the leadership programs developed through the years by Aspen Institute España, the Aspen – Cañada Blanch Seminar on Leadership and Values in Europe aims to think and debate about leadership in the 21st century. Participants debate around a selection of different classic and contemporaneous readings of political philosophy and literature. The seminar also introduces some current political, social and ethical tensions.

The seminar, moderated through the Socratic method used in other Aspen Institute España programs, aims to improve the quality of the questions and the debate on current challenges and timeless issues around human values.

The seminar was moderated by Miguel Herrero de Jáuregui, Professor of Greek Philology in the Department of Philology of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and Aspen España Fellow, and Marian Ahumada, Professor, Constitutional Law at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and Aspen España Fellow.

The Seminar was sponsored by the State Secretariat for the European Union and the Hablamos de Europa (Let’s Talk About Europe) initiative.
