The People's Forum 2024

Apia, Samoa | 21-22 October


The People’s Forum has been a central part of CHOGM week for decades, providing a unique opportunity for Commonwealth citizens to engage directly with each other; to celebrate shared values and cultures; to interact with leaders, and to participate in shaping both policy and practice. The People’s Forum 2024 is organised by the Commonwealth Foundation in close collaboration with the Host Government and the Samoa Umbrella of Non-Governmental Organisation (SUNGO). It will focus on the challenges and opportunities in delivering people-centred governance across the Commonwealth, exploring some of the most urgent issues of our time—climate justice, health justice and freedom of expression—and centring the plight of small and vulnerable states, women and young people.

Details on the programme and how to register will be available soon.
