Asia 21 Young Leaders: Changing the Narrative - Afghanistan's Future

Luncheon and discussion

As the votes are tallied in Afghanistan's historic presidential election, it is clear that the people of Afghanistan have much to gain as well as to lose in the immediate term due to ever-present Taliban violence, the stalled Bilateral Security Agreement (BSA), and the fast-approaching deadline for the withdrawal of U.S. and international forces.  Fortunately, a new generation of young, educated, empowered, and responsive Afghans is taking charge, effecting change, and shaping their future.

Please join us to learn how Asia Society’s Asia 21 Young Leaders are changing Afghanistan’s narrative, how they are working together for a better tomorrow in Afghanistan and throughout the Asia Pacific region, and how you can connect and support Asia 21’s vital work.
