The Young Leaders for Development platform ( builds on the annual EDD Young Leaders Programme, which commenced in 2015. This platform is primarily initiated and driven by Young Leaders themselves with the aim of creating interactive discussions, stimulating critical thought, and presenting innovative ideas, as well as a documentation of progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).Young Leaders from different editions contribute with interesting content, written or otherwise, highlighting their projects and initiatives, their views on the implementation of the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda, or their experiences at EDD. Contributions are mostly from young leaders; however, additional and relevant contributions from other young individuals and prominent leaders amongst these networks are also welcomed. Content focuses on (but is not limited to) any of the 17 SDGs.
