Young People and Commonwealth Day

Young people aged 18-25, who are studying in the United Kingdom, and who would like to attend a series of events organised to mark Commonwealth Day 2019 are invited to register their interest. 

Next year, Commonwealth Day will be observed on Monday 11 March.

Under the theme “A connected Commonwealth”, the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association will be organising a number of events for young people. This will include discussions about the Commonwealth, attendance at the Commonwealth Day Service where Her Majesty the Queen will be present as the Head of the Commonwealth, and also to the Secretary General’s reception in the evening also in the presence of Her Majesty.

The preference is for one male and one female delegate to attend representing Gibraltar. Ideally, they should be studying in the UK, however, the Government may consider funding students who may be based in Gibraltar.

Those interested should submit a 100 word paragraph explaining the importance of the Commonwealth to Gibraltar by email to before Friday 11 January 2019.
