The list comprises of most inspiring young leaders from across the Asian region. Thousands of nominations were put forward, with the final 30 being chosen by a panel of highly respected industry leaders. Yashveer’s inclusion on this list was in recognition of the contribution he has made to the promotion of youth-led social change in the South Asian region.

Through his work with Youth Venture, Yashveer works with educational institutes, government agencies, businesses and youth networks to build an ecosystem where young people can identify themselves as social change-makers and practice change-making early on in their lives.
