The countries and territories of the Commonwealth celebrate Commonwealth Day today to renew our friendship and provides a chance for us to reflect on our shared values.
Commonwealth Day is celebrated every year by the Commonwealth countries and territories on the second Monday in March, as the Commonwealth comes together to renew our friendship, learn from our differences and celebrate our successes.
This year the theme for the 2022 Commonwealth Day celebrations is ‘delivering a common future’.
This theme highlights how the member countries in the Commonwealth family are ‘innovating, connecting and transforming’ to help achieve some of its biggest goals, like protecting natural resources and boosting trade.
It was chosen because Commonwealth countries are connected by deep-rooted networks of friendship and goodwill.
