Commonwealth day theme for 2019

Commonwealth theme for the year

Each year a theme is chosen for Commonwealth Day. The theme informs events to mark the day and helps to guide activities by Commonwealth organisations throughout the year.

2019: A Connected Commonwealth

A Connected Commonwealth works together to protect our natural environment and the ocean that we share and cooperates on trade to encourage inclusive economic empowerment for all people - particularly women, youth and marginalised communities. Contacts us about the theme design
