The International School of Geneva - Ecolint
Established in 1924, The International School of Geneva was the first International school in the world, formed as a foundation by the League of Nations, the International Labor Office (ILO) and local educators.
Ecolint continues to have representatives of both the local government and The United Nations of the Federal Council - the school board. A team of teachers at Ecolint created the International Baccalaureate in 1968. Today the school has 4,410 students from 139 countries across three campuses.
Alumni of Ecolint connect via a number of networks and reunion events. These include:
Held in Geneva every five years - the next one celebrates the schools 100th anniversary, to be held in 2024.
Over 500 people registered for the 2019 worldwide reunion, and many more attended associated informal events.

Alumni events around the world
The Aluminati - ambassadors of the Ecolint Alumni around the world organise local reunions almost every year, typically in early December to coincide with Escalade, a festival from Geneva dating from 1602. The worldwide network of Alumni representatives are working to reconcile the contact lists they hold and those of the Alumni office, as well as to provide input for the next Ecolint worldwide reunion on 2024. Contact the Ecolint Alumni office or myself (using the form at the bottom of this page) for more information.
