Individuals Attending

Alumni of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Commonwealth Study Conferences and its affiliated conferences can be found in every corner of the globe. In all, over 5,000 individuals in more than 50 countries have participated in the leadership programs that started with the first CSC in 1956.

Connecting alumni globally is a critical objective of the Conference. A global alumni reunion is being planned for 2023 as part of the CSC Closing Plenary events on June 17-18, 2023, in Montreal.  If you are a Conference alumni and think you might like to attend the global reunion, please let us know via the link on this page.

Conference alumni may contribute to a special travel bursary fund that will be used exclusively to assist Conference members who may have special financial requirements and could not attend without support.

“I have been a part of this extraordinary network of change-makers and transformational catalysts for several years, and arguably I am who I am as a person and an African woman in business because of the CSC experience and the genuine and productive networks it’s afforded me… Even where our narratives and priorities may differ, our aspirations for a better world unite us.”
