Organised by the European Commission
Over 1 800 speakers have come to European Development Days since its inception.
From Heads of State to community service officers, Nobel laureates to project managers, everyone has a voice at European Development Days. Indeed, the forum represents an unparalleled opportunity to brainstorm and share ideas, to benchmark best practices and latest innovations, or to inform about ongoing programmes that improve the impact and effectiveness of international aid.
Regardless of gender, disability, creed, colour or political affiliation, European Development Days allows elected officials, civil society representatives and private sector representatives to share their knowledge and experiences on an equal footing.
At every level, participants, moderators and panellists from all corners of the world can all take part, put forward their ideas, and examine creative solutions to shared problems.
Many development organisations seek to improve the way development assistance is delivered in the field. European Development Days provides a unique networking and brainstorming platform for the community to come together and unite in this objective, by forming new relationships or sharing best practices at the forum.
