    CSC Global Alumni is the organisation that brings together all alumni from CSC and related programs. 

    As we grow and develop, we are keen to hear your views about what you want from CSC Global Alumni - after all, we are set up by alumni for alumni.

    This survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete.

    We believe that the real task of leaders is to create more leaders and as such we seek to provide opportunities for:

    ·        connecting with new and reconnecting with old friends

    ·        creating space for helpfully disruptive experiences

    ·        finding magic in the mix of our diverse backgrounds, histories, perspectives and interests

    ·        generative dialogue that seeks to build community both inside our group and within our projects

    ·        tapping into the wisdom in all of us

    ·        testing our ideas in a safe space

    ·        building our network for future possibilities

    ·        making our circles bigger

    We uphold the Chatham House Rule enabling a safe, equitable and just space for dialogue that makes a difference. Through this we believe that we can make the Commonwealth a better place for all.

    We thank you for taking the time to complete this short survey.

    CSC Global Alumni has launched a major campaign to re-connect with long lost alumni.

    Board members are personally reaching out to alumni who've taken part in Commonwealth Study Tours going back to the 1980s. 

    CSC Global Alumni is THE organisation established to connect Commonwealth leaders who've taken part in CSC and other related programs.

    Our aim is to facilitate these important connections and be a powerful force for good in a world.

    We ask that you:

    1. Spread the word to your own friends and colleagues who took part in your study tour, no matter how recent or far back it was

    2. Connect on our social platforms - Twitter, Facebook & Linked

    3. Register on our website (

    We hope we can create lasting and meaningful connections with the thousands of alumni that are out there.

    As Covid-19 has taken hold around the world we, as leaders, are grappling with uncertainty, complexity and confusion unlike anything we’ve known before.

    But how do you lead your organisation in times of fear and panic, deliver to your community when everything is uncertain, hold things together when it feels like it’s falling apart?

    As a community of Commonwealth leaders, CSC Global Alumni will be hosting regular small group CONN+CT sessions.

    These sessions are NOT presentations with more advice on Covid-19. After all, what we are dealing with now is unprecedented so it’s safe to say that no one has the right answer. 

    Instead these sessions aim to bring the best qualities of the CSC Leadership programmes you have all attended; providing safe, non-judgmental spaces where leaders can discuss their challenges, find support and feel connected.

    Visit to book a spot at one of our upcoming sessions.

    As the world comes to terms with the crisis that is COVID-19, there has never been a more important time for Commonwealth leaders to stand up and contribute.

    POSTPONED: As the corona virus situation is changing rapidly and the UK Government is now moving to a delay stage in the management of the virus... we have decided to postpone our Manchester pop-up till further notice.

    The health and safety of all involved - speakers and delegates - is paramount. We need to play our part in minimising unnecessary travel and enabling self-isolation where appropriate, both for protection of participants, and the wider community.

    It is disappointing to be in this position, given we have a great programme lined up but we will put it on in the future.

    In the meantime, please stay safe.

    We have received several enquiries about our CSC Global Alumni Conference planned for Kenya in November, given the unfolding global coronavirus outbreak.

    The safety and security of our delegates is of paramount importance.

    The Kenyan Government has just announced a ban on international conferences taking place in the country until further notice.

    We are continuing to work with our event organiser, Kenya Conference Solutions, towards the event going ahead as planned later this year.

    We will keep you updated on the situation.

    In the meantime, please continue to follow us on all our platforms - LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter - and our website for updates.

    CSC Global Alumni have taken part in Commonwealth Day celebrations across the world including the Americas and Asia.  

    Here is a message from Darryl White, the Chair of Commonwealth Study Conference - Canada 2022

    "Today, we mark Commonwealth Day – a celebration of the shared values and connections of 54 nations, representing almost one-third of the world’s population. Canada’s links to the Commonwealth run deep. That’s why Canada has been chosen to host the eleventh Commonwealth Study Conference.

    "I’m honoured to have been invited by Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal, Princess Anne, President of the Commonwealth Study Conference, to Chair the Conference, to be held across Canada in May 2022.

    "We’ll bring together 300 of the next generation's best and brightest leaders drawn from business, government, labour and community sectors across the Commonwealth, to spend two weeks visiting communities, large and small, across the country. They'll learn about themselves, high-performance teamwork, and the unique characteristics of Canadians that make Canada such a great place to live and work."

    Members also celebrated at Malaysia's Royal Commonwealth Society alongside some of the world's leading environmentalists including Sir David Attenborough and Joanna Ruxton from Plastic Oceans UK.
