Atlantic Dialogues Emerging Leaders Program

Fellowships

The Atlantic Dialogues Emerging Leaders Program 2019 - Morocco (Fully Funded )

Deadline: September 15, 2019

The Policy Center for the New South (PCNS) is organizing the eighth edition of the Atlantic Dialogues Conference, a high-level conference convening influential public and private sectors leaders from around the Atlantic Basin for open, informal discussion on cross-regional issues.

As we believe that it is of crucial importance to engage young leaders in policy making and in shaping narratives, PCNS encourages intergenerational dialogue during the conference and beyond, between leading experts, senior officials, and high-potential change-makers, through its Atlantic Dialogues Emerging Leaders program (ADEL).

The ADEL program is PCNS’s flagship youth program, held two days prior to the Atlantic Dialogues conference. Every year, this program brings together 40 to 50 young leaders from around the Atlantic basin and Africa. These rising leaders have displayed leadership capabilities, and have a strong sense of commitment to social and economic issues facing their communities in particular and the world in general.

Benefits

  • For the 40 to 50 selected participants, PCNS will cover economy class airfare to and from Morocco.
  • In addition, local transportation, catering, and hotel accommodation, during the dates of the program and conference will be covered by the conference organizers.
