CDRC Young Global Ambassador Programme (YGAP)

Are you passionate about mediation and negotiation? Do you want to be part of changing how a new generation will resolve conflicts? Are you proactive and communicative? Then the CDRC Global Young Ambassador Programme might be for you!

CDRC Vienna invites young professionals to become part of its global network and to help it spread the concept of its mission and its enthusiasm for mediation and negotiation. Young professionals can apply to become the ambassador of their region to help represent CDRC Vienna and create a mutual opportunity to connect with a diverse community of students, professionals, institutions and organizations around the world.


CDRC Vienna’s Young Global Ambassador Programme aims to

  • encourage the collaboration between law, business, academia and institutions to join forces for a new way to resolving disputes.
  • promote greater understanding and closer relations between CDRC Vienna and experts and institutions around the world.
  • create a community of Ambassadors who unite in the mission to advance the use of mediation in their respective regions.
  • be a forum for young professionals and mediation zealots to exchange expertise, ideas and experience in mediations and related activities.
  • create and nurture links with other organizations around the world with similar or complementary aims and objectives.

What can you offer as a CDRC Ambassador?
