European Development Days 2019 (EDD 2019), convened by the European Commission, will bring the development community together under the overarching theme, ‘Addressing Inequalities: Building a World Which Leaves No One Behind’.
The EDD 2019 agenda will be organized around three main themes: why inequalities matter for sustainable development; understanding the structural causes of inequalities; and working better together through more effective policies to address inequalities.
In addition, the European Commission is inviting young people from around the world to play an active role in EDD 2019 by participating to the Young Leaders Programme. This programme will invite 15 youth representatives to speak at the high-level panels of the forum and “bring fresh perspectives from the new generation”.
dates: 18-19 June 2019
