We strongly believe that empowering youth means empowering the future!

It is time to make their voices heard once more: applications for the EDD 2018 Young Leaders Programme will open soon! Spread the news!

Every year, young leaders from around the world share their inspirational stories at the European Development Days (EDD), the leading forum on international cooperation and development, through the Young Leaders Programme.

This year’s EDD will focus on “Women and Girls at the Forefront of Sustainable Development: protect, empower, invest.”

Do you know any young people who are actively engaged in empowering, protecting and investing in women and girls? Are they ready to share their ideas and to debate with other influential development actors?

If yes, we want to hear from them! Tell them to apply for the Young Leaders Programme and to grab the chance to be invited to Brussels for European Development Days 2018 to inspire and be inspired!

We are looking for 15 extraordinary young change makers aged 21-26 from around the world who can represent the powerful impact that youth have in the development field. The European Commission will invite these 15 Young Leaders to speak at high-level panels about a topic they are passionate about and experts of, alongside global leaders!

Submissions will be open from 29 January to 2 March 2018
