Update on the Association and future plans: George Krivicky, Alumni Association Chairman

18:50-19:35   Panel on “perspectives and challenges for climate change mitigation”. Get the latest information from our panel on this major global issue. The panel will feature Sam Fankhauser (alumnus ’07), Director, Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment (the Institute is chaired by Lord Nick Stern (alumnus ’99)), and Steven Fries (alumnus ’06), Chief Economist at Shell, both former Deputy Chief Economists at EBRD, as well as EBRD’s current Chief Economist, Sergei Guriev. The panel will be moderated by alumnus-in-waiting, Larry Sherwin, Associate Director, Events, Office of the Secretary General.


Exclusively for alumni, the EBRD Staff Choir will perform a selection of songs which will transport you around the world, wrapped in a fusion of pop, classical and show tunes. The Choir, established only three years ago, has developed itself into a pre-eminent choral ensemble. It has worked with Bafta winning Kosovan pop stars, a Latvian children's choir and a tour to Oxford. Founded by Luise Hölscher (alumna ’17), it is made up of 20-30 singers of all types and experiences from across the Bank. Highly entertaining, the Choir boldly goes where few have gone before, and regularly helps raise money for music and children’s charities in the Bank’s countries of operation.
20:00-21:30 Networking reception: a highly popular part of the reunion, the reception is an enjoyable opportunity to reconnect and catch up with other alumni and former colleagues over canapés and drinks.
