The EU Alumni Engagement Initiative for EU Delegations aims at reinforcing EU’s capacity to sustain a long term meaningful engagement with individuals in third countries who have already benefited from EU funded programmes and been in contact with the EU at one point in their lives.

This action aims at upgrading the relationship between the Alumni and the EU into a long lasting partnership based on trust and broad mutual understanding.

The programme was initiated in 2019 by the EU Foreign Policy Instrument (FPI) and is implemented by GIZ, the German International Development Cooperation Agency.

So far, kick-off events were organised in some partner countries of the EU, including China (Beijing), South Korea (Seoul), and Canada (Montreal). Alumni of the Global Cultural Leadership Programme (GCLP) based in these cities attended the events.
