Who we are The Commonwealth Commonwealth Theme The theme for the 2020 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), for Commonwealth Day and for the work of the Commonwealth more generally is Delivering a Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming This theme was chosen because the governments and people of our diverse family of 54 Commonwealth countries connect at many levels through extensive and deep-rooted networks of friendship and goodwill. Together, the countries and people of the Commonwealth tackle climate change and its impacts. We work to find sustainable ways of using the natural resources of our planet, its land and ocean, so that our environment is protected. Together, we work to build peace and harmony through social and democratic development. Together, we encourage inclusive economic empowerment and fair trade so that all people, particularly women, young people and those in marginalised communities can share the fruits of progress and prosperity. Together, we are delivering a common future by connecting, innovating and transforming our societies.Connect with the Commonwealth on social media by using #CommonwealthDay and #CommonwealthDelivers.
