Commonwealth Correspondents are regular contributors to YourCommonwealth.org.
They are aspiring youth leaders or writers from Commonwealth countries who want to engage with the rest of the world. Correspondents are keen to tell other people about ordinary or extraordinary issues or events occurring in their community, town, country or region.
YourCommonwealth.org was launched in 2011 as an interactive site for young people, students and youth leaders from across the world to engage with each other and provide a youth perspective on global debates. It is supported by the Commonwealth Secretariat and has its own independent editorial team.
The website hosts the work of the ‘Commonwealth Correspondents’, a pioneering network of young and aspiring journalists and social commentators who publish articles, interviews and comment pieces on issues of mutual concern. These young writers come from every Commonwealth region, and are eager to share their perspectives on events occurring in their community, country or region.
