The Graduate School of Environmental Science of Hokkaido University was established in 1977 under the name of Graduate School of Environmental Science, and to Graduate School of Earth System Science through restructuring and we have been revolving for the last 37 years. During these years, the number of alumni we sent out to the world has reached 4,000. Unfortunately, only few occasions of organized reunion and contacts have been made with those alumni.
In the current circumstances, it is pressing mission for educate and foster students who can contribute and be active in development of community and international societies for graduate school specialized in environmental science by fulfilling the educational and research activities.
In order to graduate schools to represent the societies needs, information and opinions, and improve our education of environmental science, it is imperative to have a correlation and cooperation with alumni who went out to the societies. It can not be achieved without exchanging information with alumni in order to materialize this mission.
On the basis of these background, the Faculty Council of Graduate School of Environmental Science resolved on establishing Alumni Association. For this resolution, “Alumni Establishment Project Committee” was held by incumbent and alumni faculty members as a main member. After the many discussions, it is concluded that newly established Alumni Association’s objective to be the establishment of human recourse network promoting communications between alumni themselves or alumni and currently enrolled students using alumni database eliminating conventional salon type atmosphere. Therefore, we are considering of implementing the following as a main scheme.

Alumni can swiftly grasp the Graduate School of Environmental Science activities as a base of environmental science, and can increase the opportunities of utilization of mutually exchanged intellectual recourses, which can be rendered to social activities and every day life in more utilized and convenient ways.
