In this divided world, there has never been a greater need for the Commonwealth’s values. Through events in Wales such as our Youth Summits and Commonwealth Day Flag-Raising Ceremony, we champion the power of connected communities to build a better world.
“There have seldom been times when we have been more aware of our connectedness and interdependence” said Commonwealth Secretary-General Patricia Scotland.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced strict curbs on life in the UK on March 24, stating that people must stay at home unless it’s an absolute necessity. Since then, it has become more important than ever for our communities to look out for one another. On April 1 2020, members of the Royal Commonwealth Society of Wales did just that.
