Commonwealth People's Forum

Delivering a Common Future:

21 - 22 June 2022 | M Hotel | Kigali | Rwanda

We are finally meeting again!

About the Commonwealth People's Forum

The CPF brings together civil society representatives from across the Commonwealth to discuss key issues facing the Peoples of the Commonwealth. It is the single largest opportunity for civil society to engage with Commonwealth leaders on global development issues.

The forum is structured around plenary sessions and interactive discussions, policy dialogues among the participants. The CPF will convene under the theme|: Advancing Together: Delivering people-centred governance through the Commonwealth. For our Health, our Planet, our Future.

The Commonwealth People’s Forum 2022 will ask and try to answer the big, important questions of our age. How do we harness the best of humanity, the forces of love, compassion, equality and justice to advance our common future.

There’s nothing quite like the power of in-person collaboration, engaged discourse and the big ideas generated from these engagements that will shape the shared future of the Commonwealth.
