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.

Loretta Pinke, EDYN Slovakia

Thanks to EDYN I have opportunities to participate in projects on both local and international level. It helped me to scale up my career and to broaden my network.

Malik Sakić, EDYN Bosnia and Hercegovina

Being a part of EDYN has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. It helped me develop my personal skills, and we’re still constantly improving. Being a part of such network is surely a privilege and having the opportunity to grow together with my peers from all across Europe makes me proud every day.

Monika Zajkova, EDYN 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.
