Regional Initiatives

Asia 21 has spawned regional hubs, each with its own cohort of young leaders taking on joint public service projects. Most significant are the India-Pakistan 21 and the Afghanistan 21 Young Leaders Initiatives. These groups are quietly pushing forward on problems that have vexed politicians for a long time; India-Pakistan cooperation, for example, and inclusive and responsive governance in Afghanistan.

In both cases, the narrative is changing—and the Asia 21 Young Leaders are on the forefront of changing it.
