Public Program | Aspen Annual Gala 2017
On October 26, 2017, the Aspen Institute Germany will host its third Aspen Annual Gala, where we will present the 2017 Shepard Stone Award. The award recognizes outstanding transatlantic leadership and accomplishments in the realm of politics, culture, society, and science that reflect and promote the shared values of the United States and Germany. The tradition was initiated in 2014 on the occasion of Aspen Germany’s 40th anniversary in memory of the extraordinary achievements of Shepard Stone, the founder and first executive director of the Aspen Institute Germany.
