The Association des Médiateurs des Collectivités Territoriales (AMCT) was created in 2013 by Claire BRISSET, Mediator of Paris from 2008 to 2014. 

Today Hervé CARRE chairs the association, which has a total of about fifty members, to which are added about ten non-member local authorities, i.e. a total of about sixty local authorities that have set up a mediator. 


Thus, several million of our fellow citizens can choose mediation to overcome their disputes with local authorities.


AMCT is proud to have initiated the organization of the First International Congress of all mediations in Angers from February 5 to 7, 2020. To this end, it has established a project partnership with other networks of mediators in France and abroad, because its members and partners are convinced that in this world in transition, the advantages of mediation as a factor of peace, harmony and the strengthening of human rights must be constantly promoted.


Destination Angers

Destination Angers was born from the ambition to make Angers a tourist destination and more broadly a destination that is being reinvented through Imagine Angers and all the City's structural projects in motion.


This new strategy for the region's influence and attractiveness has been designed with the objective of a global approach to the destination supported by a single tool to ensure the conditions for optimal, coordinated and coherent development of business and leisure tourism.

Within this structure, the Convention Bureau promotes Angers as a destination for congresses, exhibitions, seminars and conventions, with the aim of encouraging organisers to choose Angers for their next event.


It also works to create synergies and develop lasting relationships with universities, grandes écoles, sectors of excellence and competitiveness clusters, the CHU, health institutions, companies, associations, etc. to identify leaders in their field, stimulate initiatives, support project leaders until the event is created in Angers, and even create new international congresses linked to the region's sectors and thanks to the mobilization of local actors such as Mediations2020.




MEDIATION 21 is an informal collective of 27 organisations, created as an extension of an Open Forum held in Bourg la Reine (92) on 15 September 2016 on the theme "speaking with a common voice".


Convinced that the rise of mediation is a particularly appropriate response to the challenges posed by a society traversed by multiple harmful tensions, and organised by rules that their increasing complexity makes it increasingly difficult to understand in a global way, the participants in this collective work to promote quality mediation and to ensure that its development is part of a broad consultation involving all the actors concerned in the first place.


This collective wishes to be a referent, legitimate, representative and responsive interlocutor for all those who wish to engage in dialogue with the community of mediators or understand their practice, in order to clarify and prevent any ambiguity or confusion, and in order to convince decision-makers, within any body whatsoever, of the advantages of mediation.
