In addition to developing an individual project, all YLD candidates are required to engage in a diabetes-focused Regional Action Plan with the other Young Leaders from their region. The regional action plan’s main goal is to meet the needs of people living with diabetes by developing activities specifically adapted to the region’s realities.
Not only do these regional plans allow YLD candidates to share their knowledge and experience with, and learn from, their fellow YLDs, but they also foster teamwork between young people who have the same priorities at heart and understand the specific regional issues to address. Through teamwork, YLDs propose a broader action plan, which targets a larger public and addresses key regional challenges.
We invite you to click on the boxes below to discover the Regional Action Plans in which our YLD Candidates participate.
