The project is the Aspen Partnership Network, where AGLN Fellows who wish to replicate their projects in other states or countries can log on (AGPNet). AGPNet is a friendly interface where one can see all of the initiatives and if someone wishes to replicate their project or needs a good idea, you have the option to ‘alarm’ the initiative. A conservative estimate as to how many projects would be replicated is 140 projects in 10 years.
