about the edd young leaders programme

Young people are a driving force tackling  development challenges. Each year, young leaders who are widely recognised as experts in their field are hand selected by the European Commission as the European Development Days Young Leaders.​ They are a pool of extraordinary young people with strong expertise and commitment to development selected to represent the voice of youth on these issues.


our blog

This blog was created by the young leaders and is run by alumni of the programme. It intends to promote interactive discussions, critical thought, the sharing of innovative ideas and documenting inspiring stories of youth working towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


how to get involved

The EDD Young Leaders are selected and carefully vetted through a competitive application process. Sign up to the EDD newsletter to be the first to know when applications open for the next cohort of young leaders.
