What are Alumni?
Alumni are students who have attended CEI conferences as delegates at least twice, preferably more. They are now over 19 and therefore not eligible to attend as a delegate but still want to be part of the CEI family and work on improving their environment either alone, or with similar minded friends.
What does an Alumni do?
An Alumni works on a project that interests them, just as they did as students but independently. This project can be on any area of environmental stewardship and should involve an Alumni working with local community/school. Each Alumni will be asked to make a report about his/her project in the Global Forum in May.
