Atlantic Dialogues Emerging Leaders 2019 : Program Report
The Policy Center for the New South (PCNS) believes in filling in the generational and perception gaps, and this can only be achieved when the younger generations of leaders and professionals are given a seat at the table, to challenge the established perspectives and forward the conversations. The PCNS supports youth as the leaders of today and has faith in their capacity to inflict change in the present. It also believes in: intergenerational dialogue and co-leadership; youth as agents of change; youth in decision making and as important players in international platforms and debates; and youth as part of the solution to pressing Atlantic and worldwide challenges. This is what drove the PCNS to co-create and sustain the Atlantic Dialogues Emerging Leaders (ADEL) program, a young professionals platform that has been running for eight years and that connects, empowers and inspires rising leaders from across sectors, fields and regions.
