Commonwealth Day 2022 will be celebrated on Monday 14th March 2022
Commonwealth Day, held every year on the second Monday of March, is a celebration of unity, diversity and the links of the modern Commonwealth. It is also a time to bring people together for dialogue and reflection upon the designated theme of the year.
The theme for Commonwealth Day 2022 will centre around the theme for the forthcoming Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting – ‘Delivering a Common Future‘ – which highlights how the 54 member countries in the Commonwealth family are ‘innovating, connecting and transforming’ to help achieve goals like fighting climate change, promoting good governance and boosting trade.
Commonwealth Day is an opportunity for 2.4 billion people across the 54 Commonwealth countries to celebrate their shared Commonwealth values. Schools, Governments, and Parliaments of Commonwealth member states and organisations can undertake activities, events and discussions on the theme chosen for Commonwealth Day.
Given that 2022 is Her Majesty’s Jubilee Year, there will also be a special focus this year on the role service plays in the lives of people and communities across the Commonwealth. The Commonwealth Day Service is organised by the Royal Commonwealth Society and takes place in Westminster Abbey in London, UK.
To commemorate the occasion, the Grenada Houses of Parliament, along with the Ministry of Youth Development will be hosting a Youth Parliament. The Youth Parliamentarians will be having both Sittings of the Senate and of the House of Representatives.
