The Mediterranean Program

The Mediterranean edition of the Ashoka Visionary Program started out in 2019, with an exciting first international cohort uniting Israeli, Palestinian and other Mediterranean leaders of change in Greece. After a COVID-induced break, the program was revived in Italy with a key goal in mind: boosting regional development and Italy’s cultural heritage by using Ashoka’s superpowers and network of Fellows in the region! The Italian edition has been running since December 2021, and we will keep you updated on the any potential new editions and developments.
