Do you have a message for the Eminent Persons Group?Posted by JoB - 27/08/10 at 11:08 am
Although the Commonwealth Conversation came to an official end in March 2010, the work of the Eminent Persons Group (EPG) set up to explore options for Commonwealth reform is just beginning in earnest…
Heads of government, meeting in Trinidad & Tobago last November, called for the creation of an EPG partly as a result of the findings of the Conversation.
The Group’s goals are to sharpen the impact, strengthen the networks, and raise the profile of the Commonwealth. They will report to the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting which will take place in Perth, Australia in October 2011.
The Group is chaired by former Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and includes representatives from Australia, Canada, Guyana, Jamaica, Kiribati, Mozambique, Pakistan, Uganda and the UK. Click here to find out more.
In the past few weeks, we have met with several members of the Group to share what we discovered during the Conversation. However, if there is a particular message or recommendation you would like us to relay to the EPG, post your comment here and we will pass it on!
Alternatively, you can fill in a questionnaire designed by the EPG to gather the opinions of Commonwealth citizens all over the world. Click here to complete their survey.
