Young leaders from around the Atlantic basin and Africa, who have demonstrated leadership and initiative in their fields; who want to contribute to shaping the regional and global agenda in politics, finance, business, civil society, and many other areas; who are eager to network with their peers and older; and who seek to foster and strengthen ties across the PCNS Atlantic are invited to apply.
The Policy Center for the New South (PCNS) is organizing the eighth edition of the Atlantic Dialogues Conference. Further, a high-level conference convening influential public. Also, private sectors leaders from around the Atlantic Basin for an open, informal discussion on cross-regional issues.
As they believe that it is of crucial importance to engage young leaders in policymaking 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.
