Alumni Day of Action 2020

Alumni Day of Action 2020

Unite with your alumni community online for a day of positive climate action.
Saturday 10th October 2020

Uniting to take action for our planet

Join your fellow alumni from across the globe in our first-ever online Day of Action.

We may not be able to meet face-to-face this year, but Covid-19 can’t keep us apart. We’ve reimagined your annual Alunmi Reunion weekend as an interactive digital event – with plenty of opportunities to get involved.

Social media will be key to building up to the event and sharing experiences on the day. So don’t forget to post using the hashtag #NCLAlumniAction.

Welcome and preview

This year we are coming together in a different way. Our new virtual format enables alumni worldwide to join the activities and our impact to be truly global.

Discover more about the new concept, what to expect on the day and how to get involved. Your new Chair of Convocation, Sophie McDermott, tells us more.

New for 2020

This year’s ‘One Planet’ theme invites us to join forces as a community to take action on climate change. As ever, you’ll have chances to network, build your knowledge and get inspired by the world-class work of Newcastle alumni and researchers.

Learn more about the ONE planet theme and how you can take part. Julie Sanders, Deputy-Vice Chancellor, walks us through.
