ComwealthGovPremiersing ComwealthGovreads ComwealthGovreads2 ComwealthGovscoutspass ComwealthGovtoMinArcher ComwealthPremierDepGovCommonwealth Day is celebrated across the Commonwealth by young people, schools, communities and civil society organisations on the second Monday in March every year. It provides an opportunity to promote understanding
on global issues, international co-operation and the work of Commonwealth
organisations.

The day is marked by a range of activities, including a multi-faith Observance
at Westminster Abbey in London, United Kingdom. Each year a theme is chosen for Commonwealth Day.

A Young Commonwealth
“A Young Commonwealth recognises the capacity, contribution and potential
of young people, who play a vital role at the heart of sustainable development
and democracy”, Commonwealth Secretary-General Kamalesh Sharma.
“The Commonwealth is also a family of dynamic countries at the forefront
of innovation, growth and contributing global value. As a diverse and increasingly
connected global network, we bring fresh perspectives and new
ideas.”
Excerpt from the Commonwealth Website
