During the YDP, Delegates connect with like-minded young leaders, strengthen their leadership skills, build their capacity to lead and create sustainable global change, and take action for a better world.

Our Delegates are some of the world’s top young Changemakers. Cohort 5 will support 100 leaders from around the world who are taking action globally and locally to support the agenda of the United Nations.
