Peace is something more than the absence of war, although some nations would be thankful for that alone today. A durable and equitable peace system requires equal development opportunities for all nations.

2017 FES Young Leaders Forum (YLF): “Driving Change Across Sectors”

Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Afghanistan is excited to announce the launch of a new YLF generation. Established in 2004, the FES YLF program is among Afghanistan’s most distinguished young leaders networks. We bring together a unique group of graduate students as well as up-and-coming young professionals from diverse backgrounds: political activists, civil servants, scholars, journalists, y...oung entrepreneurs. What unites all of them is a strong desire to help address the socio-political and economic challenges Afghanistan and the wider region are facing. Throughout our rigorous 6-month curriculum, you will be receiving practical training in leadership, negotiation, organization and communication skills. You will have the opportunity to learn from and exchange views with established leaders and international guest speakers. And you will become part of the unique FES YLF network, an ever-growing group of truly inspiring young men and women working to contribute to positive change in Afghanistan and around the globe.
