Junior Alumni

What is a Junior Alumni?

 Junior alumni work with the conference host and senior alumni to assist and coordinate the annual CEI   conference. A large part of their role is working with the students and helping them make connections   and enjoy the conference. 


 Junior alumni also work 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 can involve working with their national   CEI branch or local community partners Each Junior Alumni will be asked to make a report about their   project in the Global Forum.

 The junior alumni do the following: 


  1. Providing support to the host of the annual CEI Conference.

  2. Being involved in the planning prior to the annual CEI Conference.

  3. Ensuring the annual CEI Conference runs smoothly and successfully.

  4. Helping the participants engage and participate actively during the annual CEI Conference.

  5. Assisting in the execution of assigned parts of the programme.

  6. Completing a project in their home country

  9. Providing creative input and innovation for the CEI framework and its conferences
