Young Leaders Programme Libya

The Young Leaders Programme in Libya targets ambitious and active young people in civil society and interested in social justice and the building of a better and more just society. Participants come from all parts of Libya to optimize the representation of the diverse Libyan society. The programme educates and empowers the participants through workshops and trainings focusing on two main aspects: Education and refining the skills of the Young Leaders. These workshops are held over the course of a whole year, where the participants meet to gain knowledge and form a network of local and international relations through meetings with representatives of international organizations and embassies. This project began in Libya in its first generation in 2018. Its participants were supported by the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung to prepare civil and political campaigns in Libya at the end of the programme, so that the participants could apply their new skills directly on the ground.
