Youth are a driving force behind some of the most inspiring development projects. At EDD 2017, young people will have their voices heard in policy discussions that will shape our future. The 16 selected Young Leaders will share their views and experiences in high-level debates, alongside world leaders and other change-makers in the development field.
During their visit to Brussels, Young Leaders get the chance to visit European institutions, participate in workshops, meet key policymakers and interact with other young people driving change around the world. They will speak at various sessions and enjoy full access to the whole conference. Travel and accommodation is covered by the European Commission.
