Asia 21 South Asia Reunion
November 16, 2021
To commemorate fifteen years of the Asia 21 Young Leaders Initiative, we hosted the first ever Asia 21 South Asia Reunion virtually on November 16, 2021. Anchored by Niret Alva (Class of 2007) and Yusra Askari (Class of 2014), the reunion saw the coming together of Asia 21 leaders from across fields, batches and geographies in South Asia and from the South Asia diaspora to celebrate the network, its potential and its future.
Given below are excerpts from the reunion - inspiring speeches by Asia 21 Leaders that spotlight contemporary challenges and debates faced collectively by South Asia today.
