A Tibetan Scholar is nominated as a young Asian Leader

November 29: Dr. Lobsang Sangay, a Tibetan research fellow at Harvard Law School, was selected as one of Asia's 200 outstanding young leaders to attend the "Asia 21 Young Leaders Summit", held in Seoul from
17-19 November 2006.

According to Asia Society, organizer of the summit, the forum aims to help prepare tomorrow's leaders for the challenges and responsibilities of global citizenship by bringing together fellows (below 40) from across Asia-Pacific to generate creative, shared approaches to leadership and problem solving.

The summit brought together delegates from 28 countries in Asia and the US, including members of parliament from New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, India and Japan, and entrepreneurs like founding members of Mozilla, Sinanet, and Google, and a number of leading journalists, artists and lawyers.

The summit explored challenges of leadership in building healthy, inclusive, safe and vibrant societies. It also explored possibilities for using value-based leadership to address Asia Pacific community's greatest challenges.

Keynote speakers at the forum included Korean Prime Minister Han Myeong-sook and former Korean President Kim Dae-Jung.

Dr. Sangay spoke about his evolution from a street activist to a youth leader and finally a diplomat scholar. Knowing the tragedy his parents and thousands of other Tibetans had suffered as a result of the Chinese occupation of Tibet, he started his activism with a militant disbelief in dialogue as a means of resolving the issue of Tibet.

But then, in 1995, he came to Harvard University and met many Chinese scholars. Most of his early discussions with them ended up as vociferous disagreements. More interactions ensued. Soon Sangay found himself organizing conferences between Chinese and Tibetan scholars in order to promote dialogue and understanding between the two sides.

Chung To, a businessman from China, narrated how his encounter with a monk in Tibet inspired him to found the Chi Heng Foundation, which subsequently won the Public Service Award for its work among AIDS and HIV patients.

Asia Society is the leading global organization working to strengthen relationships and promote understanding among the people, leaders, and institutions of Asia and the United States. It seeks to enhance dialogue, encourage creative expression, and generate new ideas across the fields of policy, business, education, arts, and culture.
