Aspen Mediterranean Initiative

The changes in the region that witnessed the Arab uprisings in 2011 prompted the launching of the Aspen Mediterranean Initiative. This project offers young leaders and key figures aged 28 to 40 from the southern rim an opportunity to interact with their Italian, European and US counterparts and with senior members of the Aspen network, trading experiences and identifying priorities and best practices. Special emphasis is laid on job creation opportunities, on energy-related and environmental issues, on the communications industry and on demographic flows. The emerging leader network comprises some 150 people.
