Youth Involvement

The EDD advocate the inclusion of youth in order to engage new voices and emerging actors in development. Following the success of the previous editions, EDD 2018  once again hosted the Young Leaders Programme, inviting 16 exceptional youth representatives to speak in the high-level panels of the forum and bring fresh perspectives from the new generation. Access the Young Leaders Programme Page.


Additionally, a dedicated space called Youth Lounge hosted six youth organisations who sparked interaction, cooperation, discussion and reflection with the ultimate goal of “shaking the development bubble”. Find out more about the agenda of the Youth Lounge here.
