Do you have experience in organising successful alumni events? Have you wished there was a larger grant to apply for at SI to realize your vision of a bigger alumni activity bringing more alumni together? Do you have an idea for a big-scale alumni event on the theme of entrepreneurship?
The SI Alumni Forum concept was launched as a pilot project in 2015. Belarus, Indonesia and Uganda were chosen for the pilot and three successful events on the theme of entrepreneurship were held during the year.
This year SI opens up for alumni from any country to apply to organise an SI Alumni Forum. One application will be approved, meaning that only one organising team will be given the opportunity to hold an SI Alumni Forum in 2016.
Please find all the details in the application instructions available for download here.
The application form can be downloaded here.
Remember to submit your application before 1 April!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the SI Alumni Team.
“This is Sweden” – a new film showcasing different sides of Sweden – was launched by the Swedish Institute today! You can watch it here:
The video is also available for download at Vimeo and Sharing Sweden (with subtitles for 14, soon 17, languages).
The teaser for the film was released last week and has already been viewed 0,5 million times on social media. It was also screened yesterday at the Nasdaq Video Tower in Times Square, New York city.
The award-winning production company B-Reel Films produced the movie, Olof Lindh directed. At the age of 25 he already has a number of awards and achievements under his belt, including work for Spotify: “We’ve chosen a documentary method, shooting with real people in real situations rather than professional actors, to capture a true and multifaceted glimpse of life in Sweden.”
Alice Boman’s melancholic song Waiting helps convey the feeling further and the artist supports the video’s open message: “I’m proud to represent Sweden, the parts of Sweden this film highlight.”

Dear Swedish Institute Alumni worldwide!
We are the team of the first Swedish Institute Alumni Forum (SIAF) on Entrepreneurship in Belarus (SIAF) and we would like to share our experience in the arrangement and conduction of the Forum. Unfortunately, we are not able to describe all the peculiarities, details and specifics of the Forum organization in one short blog article but we’d like to bring your attention to the most important parts.
Writing “we”, we mean the core of the team – 8 active participants: Ivan Tikota, Katsiaryna Syrayezhkina, Natalia Romeiko, Pavel Makhnach, Aleh Kliatsko, Aliaksei Kazlou, Maryna Barouka and Liudmila Fokeeva. Of course, it doesn’t mean that we did everything by ourselves. Within the organizing process a lot of other alumni in Belarus provided their support in different stages and in various activities.
