Applications are open for the Future Leaders Programme

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 to win an invitation to the 2015 edition of European Development Days (EDD15) and speak about issues you are passionate about, alongside world leaders!

The EU is 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.

The 12 finalists will be invited to speak alongside key political leaders at EDD15 in Brussels on 3 and 4 June, all expenses paid. During your visit to Brussels, you will have the opportunity to visit the European Institutions and participate in debates with leading thinkers about development policy, as well as share your story.
