European Commission calls for #youngleaders worldwide to speak up at the European Development Days 2017
Young people from all corners of the world, aged 21 to 26, are invited
by the European Commission to take part in the Young Leaders Programme at this year’s European Development Days (EDD 2017). The event is Europe’s leading forum on international cooperation and development and it will take place in Brussels on 7 and 8 June.
The Young Leaders Programme will engage young leaders to be part of the debate on the future of international development cooperation.
What is the Young Leaders Programme?
Youth are a driving force behind some of the most inspiring development projects. At EDD 2017, young people will have their voices heard in policy discussions that will shape our future. The 16 selected Young Leaders will share their views and experiences in high-level debates, alongside world leaders and other change-makers in the development field.
During their visit to Brussels, Young Leaders get the chance to visit European institutions, participate in workshops, meet key policymakers and interact with other young people driving change around the world. They will speak at various sessions and enjoy full access to the whole conference. Travel and accommodation is covered by the European Commission.
