Deadline: March 25, 2022

The EDD offers a unique opportunity for young people from all over the world with strong expertise and commitment to positive social change to share their views, influence decision-makers and stakeholders, and further develop leadership skills. In accordance with the regulation in place in June 2022, we will invite those selected as EDD Young Leaders to participate in the High-Level Panels in Brussels.

To submit your application to be one of the EDD Young Leaders this year, please create an online profile on the EDD website. Once you have registered your profile, you will be able to start the online application process to participate in the EDD 2022 Young Leaders Programme.

If you would like to get involved in the EDD 2022,  find out more about this year’s themes and topics, the different session types, the submission process, and the deadlines.

To submit a proposal for a session, a stand, or an exhibition/performance and apply for the Young Leaders Programme, you need to create a profile and log into your EDD account.

For each EDD 2022 theme, you can join a group of discussions to interact with other participants, share information and build potential partnerships for organizing sessions. Register for and access the groups via the following links:

  • Digital theme
  • Climate and energy theme
  • Transport theme
  • Health theme
  • Education and research theme


  • Applicant should be between 21 and 26 years old on 14-15 June 2022.
  • They may be from anywhere in the world
  • young Leaders are expected to be fluent in English or French.


The selected Young Leaders will be invited to speak in High-Level Panels at EDD 2022, alongside VIPs and key decision-makers. Though this experience is rewarding, as it gives youth participants a voice as high-level speakers, the allocated time for speaking on the panel can be
limited. Thus, we encourage Young Leaders who come to EDD 2022 to participate in other sessions too, including Lab Debates or Brainstorming Sessions, where they will be given more space to express their opinions and share their experiences. Please read the Community Guide on our website for more information about sessions at EDD 2022.
