It's just over a year since we published the first infographic about our alumni community. In the intervening period an additional 700 members have registered on the website and hundreds more have updated their user profiles, providing us with additional information about their education and professional activities.
With all of that additional information to draw on, we're pleased now to present our "ALUMNOGRAPHIC 2015". We'll be circulating printed copies of this throughout the schools in the coming weeks, providing teachers and students alike with an impression of the many and varied paths taken by our alumni post-Ecolint.
The information provided by our alumni on their user profiles is of great value, not just for producing pretty pictures like this, but also when it comes to supporting the Guidance teams across the Foundation. We encourage all alumni to keep their profiles up-to-date.

Thanks for the suggestion Alexis. Of course you are correct in saying that many of our alumni have worked in the UN system. They would fall into the "NGO, nonprofit" category on the chart above. I accept that perhaps this category title should be adjusted to include the UN, which isn't really an NGO. Perhaps we will change it to "NGO, Nonprofit, International Development" or something along those lines.
Concerning "Professions", surely I'm not the only person to have had a career in the UN system, or World and Regional banks, or regional IGOs, or national foreign aid mechanisms... in the field of "International Cooperation and Develoment" (or other suitable wording)??? This field would seem to be attractive to Ecolint graduates and, if so, their contribution to it might be worthy of being noted as a footnote to the page (X members pursued their
professional activities within the framework of the UN system, IGOs ..........).
(Also feasible?: primarily in the areas of international diplomacy, educational develoment ...)???
Thanks for this fine and interesting work.
