Young European Leaders

Promoting democracy, development and sustainability

The program „Young European Leaders“ enables the development of young strategies for sustainable development in Europe, focusing on the topics of green economy, climate protection, engagement and the global south.

By dealing with concrete issues of sustainable development and peer-to-peer exchange in a network for engagement, the young Europeans are encouraged to participate and empowered to make their own decisions and get involved in decision-making processes.

The program is aimed at young people, young professionals and thus the future leaders of Europe. It explicity addresses participants with diverse backgrounds and from different fields. Through seminars including innovative methods and in-depth discussions on current and future challenges to European societies, the participants experience self-efficacy, engage intensively with relevant sustainability issues, and can situate themselves as engaged citizens in solution and decision-making processes.

The program consists of four project modules, including three content strands and a networking event.

The focus is on mutual learning along the common challenges and the sustainable establishment of an exchange between the committed participants.
