 Seventeen young people studying and working in Qatar have been selected to participate in the 2022 Ambassador Program offered by Qatar Foundation’s Doha Debates. They join a cohort of 42 aspiring leaders from around the world who will learn advanced communication skills to engage in productive, solutions-oriented discussions of complex global issues. These ambassadors, who are between the ages of 17 and 28, represent 16 countries on five continents.

In keeping with Doha Debates’ mission to empower young people to bridge differences and build consensus through dialogue and debate, the program will focus on honing ambassadors’ discussion and negotiation skills as they tackle critical issues like climate change, gender equality, and disability justice, seeking to find common ground with peers who have diverse worldviews.

More than 300 young people worldwide applied to be part of this year’s program, which will feature renowned international guest leaders, including conflict resolution expert Govinda Clayton and Afghan-British journalist and Doha Debates correspondent Nelufar Hedayat.

Doha Debates’ 2022 Ambassador Program includes students from Qatar University and Qatar Foundation (QF) partner universities Georgetown University in Qatar, Northwestern University in Qatar, and Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts in Qatar, as well as a member of the Qatar Armed Forces.

Additional cohort members hail from the US, Lebanon, Turkey, Bangladesh, Thailand, the Philippines, Morocco, India, Pakistan, Brazil, Nigeria, Finland, France, the UK, and Sri Lanka.

Amjad Atallah, Managing Director of Doha Debates, said: “After a tremendously successful launch last summer, we're thrilled to welcome a new cohort of the Doha Debates Ambassador Program.

“The Ambassador Program takes Doha Debates’ mission to a new level, helping a select group of extraordinary future leaders develop the skills they need to bridge divides and work together to solve urgent problems. We salute the new ambassadors and thank Qatar Foundation for its support of this unique initiative.”

The Ambassador Program is facilitated in partnership with Shared_Studios, a global, purpose-driven startup using innovative technology to build connections and enable collaboration anywhere in the world.
