Silk Road

Through passages of Silk Road, along banks of the Oxus River, and across steppes of Balkh where once Zoroaster, Prince Siddhartha and Rumi dreamed, let us witness a new awakening…

The steppes of Central Asia once cradled extraordinary art and culture that launched enchanted and epic stories and civilizations.  While it may be difficult to imagine that rich history with so many of the nations along the Silk Road in the grips of endless wars and suffering, that is exactly what we must do.

So let us imagine then a new axial shift where sovereign and enduring peace fosters a new cadre of leaders and visionaries in a seat latent with light sprang from ashes of strife.

Council on Global Relations is engaged to develop such leaders for a new era.
