John Kerry to speak at Ideas Fest Tuesday
Secretary of State John Kerry is scheduled to speak today in a conversation called “Our Age of Insecurity.”
Aspen Institute President and CEO Walter Isaacson will interview Kerry, scheduled from 3 to 4 p.m. at the Greenwald Pavilion.
Those without tickets can head to the Hotel Jerome and watch the conversation live for free. The public will be admitted until the venue reaches capacity, according to the Aspen Institute.
Security is expected to be tight at the Aspen Meadows campus this week with Kerry as well as Vice President Joe Biden and Attorney General Loretta Lynch, among the list of notable speakers.
The Secret Service and other agencies have been securing the Aspen Meadows campus and have asked that it be open only to passholders for the duration of the Festival. Anyone without a pass will not be allowed on campus during this time. There also will be some traffic disruptions Saturday morning when the vice president visits, causing potential disruptions for those in the Aspen area.
Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
“I want to apologize in advance for some inconveniences that may occur,” Isaacson said. “We have been working very hard with the Secret Service and our great local law enforcement officials to do all that they possibly can to minimize any delays. I sincerely hope you will take part in some aspect of the festival, whether in person at an event in town or by watching online.”
