The Young Leaders Programme at European Development Days (EDD) 2018, will take place in Brussels, Belgium, from 5th to 6th June 2018. Are you joining the debate about development policy and international cooperation?

The organising team will select 15 young adults between 21 and 26 years old from across the world who have demonstrated their expertise and leadership on one of the EDD 2018 topics.


They will be invited to Brussels to share their projects and experiences, as well as to engage with delegations from governments and international organisations in search of solutions to the world’s most pressing problems.


The overall theme of EDD 2018 will be ‘Women and Girls at the Forefront of Sustainable Development: protect, empower, invest’ .


Meanwhile the debate will be developed around three key priorities in today’s current context:

  • Ensuring the physical and psychological integrity of Girls and Women,
  • Promoting economic and social rights and empowerment of Girls and Women,
  • Strengthening Girls’ and Women’s voice and participation.


To apply you have to upload a link to a 2-min English video on Youtube, presenting yourself, the vision of your chosen topic and why you should be selected as a youth representative at EDD 2018.
