About The Commonwealth

The Commonwealth is a voluntary association of 53 independent countries.

It is home to 2.2 billion citizens and over 60% of these are under the age of 30. The Commonwealth includes some of the world’s largest, smallest, richest and poorest countries, spanning five regions. Thirty-one of its members are small states, many of them island nations.

The Commonwealth’s guiding principles are in its Charter.

Commonwealth policies are shaped by member countries, who have an equal say on decisions affecting them. Commonwealth organisations put these decisions and plans into action.
