EAST-WEST CENTER OUTREACH EVENT
East-West Center held an outreach reception at Architects Hawaii, Ltd. on Tuesday, September 23, 2014 to give leading architects, engineers, and developers in Hawai‘i the opportunity to meet 15 rising young leaders from the United States and the Asia Pacific region participating in the New Generation Seminar program at the East-West Center. The New Generation Seminar is a two-week intensive education, dialogue and travel program that was established 24 years ago. The program is developed around a thematic focus and provides participants with an opportunity to strengthen their understanding of Asia Pacific-US developments, discuss issues of common critical concern and build a regional network to become leaders with a more international perspective.
