The European Development Days (EDD) are Europe’s leading forum on development and international cooperation. Organised by the European Commission, the forum brings the development community together each year to share ideas and experiences in ways that inspire new partnerships and innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.
The European Commission is looking for 16 extraordinary young people ages 21-26, from across the world with proven commitment and community engagement to represent the powerful impact that youth have in the development field.
The winners will be ‘movers and shakers’ in their communities and countries who are helping to solve the universal challenges outlined in the EDD 2016 programme. The 16 selected Young Leaders will be invited to Brussels, Belgium, and all expenses (Visa, travel, accommodation) will be covered by the European Commission.
Are you aged between 21 and 26 and proactive about finding solutions to the world’s most pressing problems?
Are you ready to sit shoulder to shoulder with world leaders at a global forum on international development?
Apply now for your chance to be one of 16 Young Leaders at EDD 2016, speak on a high-level panel, and showcase your development work to global audiences.
Young Leaders are also invited to take part in activities and workshops, share their views, draft recommendations and meet with development decision-makers from around the world.
How to apply? Applicants must show leadership and knowledge in one of the EDD 2016 topics, demonstrate expertise in their chosen field, and explain how they will represent young people at the forum.
All expenses for the 16 selected Young Leaders will be covered by the European Commission.
