Commonwealth Day, 2012 - Connecting Cultures

2012

12 March 2012 In his Commonwealth Day message Secretary-General Kamalesh Sharma said that " 'Connecting Cultures’ is about appreciating and celebrating these ways in which others live their lives and express themselves. And it is about much more than that too. It is about exploring how we can bring cultures together, how we can connect them in order to learn, to deepen the appreciation we have of one another. ‘Connecting Cultures’ encourages us to explore how we can use culture to build bridges of exchange and understanding."
