O logótipo da Sociedade Atlas

Junte-se à The Atlas Society para a nossa conferência inaugural de estudantes na Cidade da Música este Verão!

The Galt’s Gulch Summit will deepen young people’s understanding of Ayn Rand's ideas, and equip them with the philosophical tools necessary to think critically, act independently, set meaningful personal goals, find win-win relationships, and defend their rational self-interest. The summit will be held at the Nashville Marriott on Vanderbilt Campus – and kicks off the afternoon of Thursday, July 27th, and ends the afternoon of Saturday, July 29th.
** Student/Young Adult complimentary room block is now FULL. Limited Student/Young Adult Tickets are still available, but attendees will be responsible for their own lodging throughout the duration of the conference. Travel scholarships for transportation are still available, applications are due by July 1st. **
