The meeting is open to all graduates of the University of Edinburgh, and will take place online via Microsoft Teams Live Events. Although it's a different setting to what we are used to, the Meeting promises to be the usual mixture of reflection, discussion and looking forward, and is the perfect chance for alumni to make comments and ask questions.
