Draft Commonwealth Conversation Recommendations
In November 2009 we published the emerging findings of the Conversation. Click here to read the report: Common What?. Throughout the Conversation we have heard much to concern us, not least that the association’s profile is unhealthily low. And when we dug deeper into why profile is so low, we discovered an urgent need for the Commonwealth to refocus on its principles, priorities and people.
However, we have also heard much to give us hope. The Commonwealth has all the ingredients to be a leading, effective and influential international association in the 21st century…but it is essential that all members of the Commonwealth family make better, more strategic use of these assets.
As we near the end of the Conversation, we have begun to draft 10 key recommendations based on all that we have heard, which are shown in the slides below. Let us know what you think of these 10 recommendations so far by giving each slide a ‘thumbs up’ or ‘thumbs down’. You can also leave longer comments at the bottom of the page. You can download a PDF of all these slides here: Draft Commonwealth Conversation Recommendations. In order for us to incorporate your comments, please let us know what you think by Thursday 18th February.
