We are a coalition of young civic and political leaders, united to empower new generations of changemakers. We know democracy faces a public confidence problem. After decades of not seeing democracy work for them, many young people simply disengage from civic and political life. It takes courage and vision to break from business-as-usual, and stand up for democracy. It is not always popular to be active in the public life. But if not us, who?

If you want to join the fight to protect our freedoms and democracy against hate and authoritarians, know you are not alone. Join us.

Your message will be sent to your respective Country Chapter.
If there is no EDYN Ambassador in your country, EDYN HQ will contact you directly.

Juela Hamati, EDYN Ambassador in Albania

Having Alex Savic around made me realize how uninformed I was about the LGBTQ community. He is one of my best friends now. Joining EDYN opened my mind.

Monika Zajkova, EDYN Ambassador in North Macedonia

EDYN broke my fears of public speaking and gave me network, knowledge, experience, and ideas. I feel more self-confident in front of my party and the voters thanks to the international support I could show.

Mikheil Kumsishvili, EDYN Ambassador in Georgia

We’ve realised we need to cooperate. The main goal – protecting democratic values in Georgia – is more important than looking at our differences.
