Are you playing an active role in the fight against poverty? Have you been involved in innovative projects to address global challenges in your community? Do you want to share your vision of the future with global leaders?

If yes, then you should apply for the Future Leaders Programme and win an invitation to the 2015 edition of European Development Days (EDD15), to speak about issues you are passionate about, alongside world leaders!

As a FUTURE LEADER, you will speak in the auditorium panel discussions along with key political leaders, and have the opportunity to present your story to the audience, engaging with the delegations of governments and international organisations. Prior and during the forum, the FUTURE LEADERS will have the opportunity to visit the EU institutions, meet relevant development policy-makers and present practices from their regions.

  • Applicants must be between 21 and 26.
  • Applications are open to young adults from all around the world, without restriction of nationality.

The candidate must be able to speak clearly and comprehensively in one of these languages. Passive translation will be provided if necessary during EDD15 for those languages.
  • Applicants must be able to travel to and participate in EDD15 in Brussels.

They are looking for 12 extraordinary young people ages 21-26 from around the world who can represent the powerful impact that youth are having in the development field. The finalists will be ‘movers and shakers’ in their communities who are able to speak at a high-level about a topic they are passionate about, outlined in the EDD programme.

Roles and Responsibilities:

The 12 finalists will be invited to speak alongside key political leaders at EDD15 in Brussels on 3 & 4 June, all expenses paid.
