Europe’s leading forum on international partnerships, the European Development Days (EDD), returns in 2022. The 15th edition gathers the global development community, both in person in Brussels and online, on 21 and 22 June.

The two-day event is the EU’s premier forum for discussion of the big issues facing international partnerships today. It is the biggest of its kind, attracting more than 10,000 participants each year. President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen announced the event on 11 April and said: “I'm looking forward to welcoming political leaders, representatives of civil society and the private sector from around the world to the European Development Days, where we will discuss concrete implementation of Global Gateway.”

This year once again sees the involvement of EDD Young Leaders – exceptional young people from all over the world who have shown their strong commitment to positive social change.
