From boats to biogas: Raleigh’s journey, your story
In 2012 Raleigh International hosted its first international conference. Delivered through a mixture of interactive workshops, panel discussions and keynote speakers, the event was open to all alumni, with participants attending from around the world.
In 2012 Raleigh International’s global community was made up of over 35,000 alumni and across this community, individuals were doing what they still continue to do today – take positive actions to strengthen and improve the world around them. So in 2012 for one day, Raleigh International brought its alumni together under one roof to celebrate their achievements and to recreate that sense of belonging.
The conference was held on Saturday 12th May 2012 at Mary Ward House in Central London and was an opportunity to:
- Access priceless networking opportunities, with like-minded people, not only from a broad range of sectors, but globally too. In attendance were alumni from China, Ghana, Uganda, India, Costa Rica, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Bermuda, Japan, the Philippines and Australia.
- Build a variety of skills and knowledge from our alumni-led workshops – from setting up a social enterprise to being a community champion.
- Renew old connections and meet country directors past and present.
- Find out more about the journey of Raleigh International as a charity and the impact it has had all over the world.
