The Atlantic Council’s South Asia Center invites you to attend “Banking on Youth: Pakistan’s Changemakers,” a panel discussion and networking reception with its 2013 Emerging Leaders of Pakistan (ELP) Fellows on February 8 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. in Islamabad, Pakistan.

Pakistan is a young and increasingly urban society, which lends tremendous opportunity for progress through its demographic dividend.  The youth, who account for nearly 60 percent of Pakistan’s population, will ultimately determine Pakistan’s future course. To help empower these young people in Pakistan, the Atlantic Council’s South Asia Center launched the Emerging Leaders of Pakistan fellowship program, which seeks to identify and support the country’s next generation of civil society leaders through the creation of a collaborative and proactive network.

Fifteen Pakistan-based fellows from diverse backgrounds are serving as the second ELP fellowship class. Recently returned from the United States, where they met with policymakers, entrepreneurs, and civil society leaders, the ELP fellows will share their experiences with the Islamabad community. They will highlight their ongoing work and vision for the engagement of Pakistan’s youth, while addressing issues such as education, entrepreneurship, and national development.
