What is Aspen Institute España for you?
Aspen España Fellows Program

Aspen Institute España selects each year from its network of Alumni those who have excelled during their participation at the seminars to become candidates for the Aspen España Fellows Program.


The Aspen Institute Alumni Network is an engaged community of people actively participating in our educational and policy studies events, providing important input for our activities, and helping sustain our mission to foster leadership based on enduring values and to provide a nonpartisan venue for dealing with critical issues.


The creation of the Aspen Institute España Fellows Program joins the network of committed Aspen alumni with the mission of Aspen in Spain and offers its members the opportunity to join the international Network of Aspen. Aspen Fellows may be trained to become moderators of Aspen seminars and have access to other programs and seminars of The Aspen Institute. Thus, their role as representatives and ambassadors of Aspen España is encouraged.

Luis Villa del Campo
Independent Consultant Stratrgy and Design
In the era of the algorithm, Aspen España is a shared space of inquiry, discovery, and wonder. Inquiry about the unanswered questions we, as Humans, have made ourselves through millennia. Discovery, when through dialogue, we unveil new personal meanings from written reflections from people who faced similar challenges during their times. Wonder when we realize we are part of a continuum that weaves people, time and space keeping the questions alive. Aspen España is a space to explore what does not change and no algorithm is able to codify: diversity, open dialogue, and friendship.

The spirit of ASPEN Institute represents the defense of the Western democracies: dialogue, freedom, knowledge, solidarity, personal and collective intellectual growth, tolerance between different positions and collaboration. In an open society, institutions like ASPEN help us to live with the uncertainty of life, with the new behavior patterns of contemporary society and with questions that are difficult to answer but are present in our lives.

Full Professor of Strategy and Public Management, ESADE
Aspen España allows, from the authenticity, to share quality conversations, among an ecosystem of professionals from different origins. What gives the institution its high quality is the type of dialogue and the conversations on real problems and challenges that are generated. Aspen España also contributes to a holistic integral development, which includes meaning and purpose in life. It helps to connect people in their intimate spaces, from which the meaning of the things we do is generated. Aspen España accompanies a growth in consciousness, for a better insight into the core aspects of human life through spaces of constant thinking.
Lorenzo Zavala
Partner Director, NGS-Global for Mexico, Brazil and Spain; Associate Professor, ESADE
Aspen España has helped me ask myself relevant questions and, thanks to them, grow both personally and professionally; Aspen España has also helped me to reflect on my convictions, responsibilities and desires, seeking and valuing the harmony between all this. In Aspen España, deep and rigorous opinions and doubts are exchanged in a frank and direct way. Through its seminars I have met interesting people whom I respect a lot today. I would say that there is an “Aspen” way of analyzing the professional, personal and social landscape that is tremendously useful and enriching for me that I try to incorporate and make my own. I am very grateful to Aspen España for that.
