YOUNG LEADERS .
Next generation of CityChangers .
Stay tuned for the 2020 edition of our Young Leaders Programme!
The online application will start in autumn.
A fantastic first edition of the Young Leaders Programme took place in Oslo
from May 22-24 during UFGC19. But why did we launch the YLP in the first place?
We think that it is essential to involve the next generation of leaders in the discussion about the future of our cities. That’s why we launched the URBAN FUTURE Young Leaders programme at #UFGC19 – together with our content partner EUROCITIES, Europe’s largest network of cities. This programme marks a milestone not only for UFGC but most importantly for young, ambitious urban leaders passionately and actively changing their cities for the better.
We created the Young Leaders Programme to get ambitious young changemakers connected: have experienced leaders learn from you, meet CityChangers from all over the world, and be part of a strong network of likeminded Young Leaders, that goes way beyond the conference days.
Benefits of joining UFGC as a Young Leader
There is an exclusive programme track designed for Young Leaders at UFGC – goosebumps guaranteed. It includes workshops with international experts focused on fostering skills and knowledge crucial to Young Leaders, very personal fireside chats with political, community and business leaders, and the opportunity to bring your own ideas forward and benefit from the wisdom of the crowd – all of that on top of the extraordinary “regular” conference programme.
See you in fall for the 2020 edition!
