Discussions at PRIME’s Young Scholars Program, Jan 2016
This time, a diverse group of 17 young individuals including academics, social activists and researchers were carefully selected from around Pakistan to participate in the workshop which was held in Murrree, a hill station near Islamabad, from 9 to 11 December 2016. During the two-day workshop, participants learned about individual, political and economic liberty, role of Think Tanks, how to convert ideas into meaningful action and effective communication. These sessions were conducted by Mr. Ali Salman, Executive Director PRIME, Ms. Ayesha Bilal, Chief Operating Officer and Syed Ali Ehsan, Head of Marketing and Communications. At the end, each participant shared what they learned and how it applies to their ideas and goals for future activities. PRIME Institute has pledged to facilitate the young fellows in structuring their ideas into tangible actions and provide them support through aligning with PRIME’s activities.
