The European Commission is inviting young people from around the world to play an active role in this year’s European Development Days (EDD 2018) by participating to the Young Leaders Programme.

The 15 selected Young Leaders participating in the programme will share their views and experiences in high-level debates alongside world leaders and other change-makers in the development field. Since 2015, the pool has grown with each year’s promotion and the Young Leaders for Development blog has become a go-to platform to exchange ideas, projects and initiatives.

The Young Leaders Programme will consist of a 10-day visit to Brussels, where Young Leaders will participate in workshops with EU policymakers, stakeholders, and play a leading role in the EDD Programme, which will include speaking in various session alongside global leaders.

Travel and accommodation are covered by the European Commission.

Applications will open on 29 January until 2 March.
