Team Commonwealth is the theme for 2014 Commonwealth Day

The 2014 Commonwealth theme, "Team Commonwealth" will be launched in the presence of HM The Queen at Commonwealth Observance on Commonwealth Day - 10th March. We want to get the message out about the theme, and amplify the conversation about what the theme means to the people of the Commonwealth. What does the theme means to you? And how are you going to celebrate the Commonwealth Week? Commonwealth Day is the annual celebration of the Commonwealth of Nations held on the second Monday in March, and marked by a multi-faith service in Westminster Abbey, normally attended by HM Queen Elizabeth II, Head of the Commonwealth, with the Commonwealth Secretary-General and Commonwealth High Commissioners in London. The Queen delivers an address to the Commonwealth, broadcast throughout the world. Commonwealth Day is an opportunity to promote understanding on global issues, international co-operation and the work of the Commonwealth’s organisations, which aim to improve the lives of its citizens. The aim of Commonwealth Day is to celebrate the unity, diversity and linkages of the modern Commonwealth and foster greater understanding of the Commonwealth’s achievements and role. The theme for 2014 will be Team Commonwealth. The theme is intended to stress the importance of teamwork and collaboration both within and between Commonwealth countries. It also sets the tone for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow later in the year. This theme will be reflected in the Observance and throughout Commonwealth Week.
