WEF affiliate names McCann’s Prasoon Joshi as Young Global Leader 2006

The Forum of Young Global Leaders, an affiliate of the World Economic Forum, has named Prasoon Joshi, Regional Creative Director, McCann Erickson, South and South-East Asia, as a Young Global Leader 2006. He is one of 40 Asians chosen to become Young Global Leaders (YGL) in 2006 and will join a global community now including 410 leaders from all regions and stakeholder groups.

Each year a new class of around 200 YGLs is selected for a five-year membership, ultimately forming a community of 1,111 by 2009. The 2006 class was chosen from among 3,500 candidates by the Forum of Young Global Leaders’ Nomination Committee, featuring 28 international media leaders, including Carl-Johan Bonnier of Bonnier AB in Sweden; Arthur Sulzberger, publisher of the New York Times; Tom Glocer, Chief Executive of Reuters; and Rui Chenggang, Director and Anchor of China Central Television. The Committee is chaired by Jordon’s Queen Rania.

The 2006 class of Young Global Leaders includes over 60 business leaders, more than 30 government leaders, and dozens of scholars, media and NGO leaders. They come from 50 countries ranging from Argentina to Zimbabwe. Joshi joins a community representing 90 countries that includes Larry Page and Sergey Brin, co-founders of Google; Mikheil Saakashvili, President of Georgia; Kumi Naidoo, Secretary-General and Chief Executive Officer, Civicus: World Alliance for Citizen Participation; Brazilian singer Daniela Mercury, and Michelle Guthrie, CEO, STAR Group.

The Young Global Leaders will meet as a community at their Annual Summit in Vancouver, Canada, from June 9-12, 2006, when they will engage together in the 2020 Initiative, a comprehensive endeavour to understand current and future trends, risks and opportunities at both the global and regional levels, formulate a positive vision for the world in 2020, and put forward concrete strategies to translate their vision into action.

Established in 2004 by Professor Klaus Schwab, Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, the Forum of Young Global Leaders is a unique, multi-stakeholder community of the world’s most extraordinary leaders who are 40 years or younger and who are ready to dedicate a part of their time and energy to jointly work towards a better future.
