Asia society selects Arunabha Ghosh, CEO of Council on Energy, Environment and Water, to represent india at the
Asia 21 young leaders summit this year. He has been named among the 150 next generation leaders from 30 countries in the Asia Pacific region, all under age 40, who will engage in discussions about “Worlds Apart Together: Shared Values for an Asia-Pacific Community” during Asia Society’s sixth annual Asia 21 Young Leaders Summit, to be held in New Delhi from November 18 to 20, 2011.
The diversity of representation – from business, government, academia, media, civil society, and the arts - brings a wide range of perspectives to the discussions, which will explore issues such as developing a sustainable energy policy for Asia, whether corruption is hampering the region’s development, and whether food security should take precedence over civil rights, amongst others.
The Asia Society’s Asia 21 Young Leaders Summit is part of a larger initiative designed to help emerging leaders from across the region to develop common approaches to meet its shared challenges. “The Asia 21 young leaders represent the future of the Asia-Pacific region. The work that this incredible community of leaders is doing today and will do in the future is laying a strong foundation for regional collaboration for decades to come,” said Asia Society Executive Vice President Jamie Metzl.
