What the Young Leaders Programme Is All About
The European Commission is inviting young people from around the world to play an active role in this year’s EDD.
We are looking for 17 extraordinary young people aged 21-26 who can represent the powerful impact that youth are having in the sustainable development field. The Young Leaders Programme will consist of a 10-day visit to Brussels, where Young Leaders will meet EU experts, stakeholders and play a leading role in the EDD Programme, which will include speaking in various session alongside global leaders. Applications will close on Friday 21st February (1:00 PM CET)
Sessions: The selected Young Leaders will be invited to speak in high-level panels at EDD 2020, alongside VIPs and key decision makers. Though this experience is rewarding, as it gives youth participants a voice as high-level speakers, allocated time of speech on the panel can be limited. Thus, we encourage Young Leaders who come to EDD 2020 to participate in other sessions, including lab debates sessions or brainstormings, where they will be given more space to express their opinions and share their experiences. Please read the community guide on our website for more information about sessions at EDD 2020.
It is important that the Young Leaders invited to come and speak at EDD 2020 represent young people, and don’t speak in their name only. We are looking for candidates who have proven leadership in projects, organisations, initiatives and who are able to represent their generation at the forum.
