About the group
Creating an open, collaborative and inclusive forum
European Development Days shows Europe’s commitment to the eradication of global poverty. Launched in 2006 by the Council of the European Union as a vehicle for greater aid effectiveness, the forum fosters knowledge sharing, innovative thinking and real efficiency gains. All this with one aim in mind: to constantly improve our concepts and instruments in securing better lives for people across the globe.
The forum further builds on a core belief: cooperation is the cornerstone of a fairer world. Development aid alone will not be enough. Only through the mobilisation of all actors – development practitioners, multilateral organisations, governments, experts, researchers, civil society, business, journalists and citizens – can and will the world change. An essential aim of European Development Days is thus to facilitate networking and inspire the desire to work together even more closely in a spirit of true partnership.
Everyone is given a voice in this open, collaborative and inclusive platform! Each year, all stakeholders are invited to contribute directly to EDD by proposing activities and sessions to be included in the official programme. We invite the development community to get involved and share its views and experiences.
