What is it? City Alumni is an initiative devoted to unify people scattered around the country or even the globe but who come from the same city, town, village or region and are joining together to contribute to the welfare and prosperity of their hometown. City Alumni is established to help to build strong communities by inspiring connection and communication between local people and those who left their hometown but are not indifferent to it and aspire to „give-back“ to the community. City Alumni aims to bring people together, socialize and spark action for better livelihood in the areas they’ve grown up.
