 EDD Young Leaders 2017 

about the edd young leaders programme

Young people are a driving force tackling some of the most important development issues. The programme allows young people to share their views on key topics relating to development, influence decision-makers and stakeholders, and develop their full potential as leaders and change-makers.


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).
