The People's Forum 2020
22 - 24 June Kigali, Rwanda
About the People's Forum 2020
The Commonwealth People’s Forum convenes every two years, immediately before the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM). This unique gathering of civil society actors gives the people of the Commonwealth the chance to have a say in issues and decisions that directly affect their lives. By bringing important—often unheard—voices into CHOGM, the People’s Forum affirms the Commonwealth’s values of democracy, justice, and people-centred governance.
The People’s Forum 2020 will take place in Kigali, Rwanda from 22-24 June. Delegates, speakers, and performers are promoting a radical shift in thinking to address the important questions of our age. How do we harness the best of humanity—the forces of love, compassion, equality, and justice—to advance our common future and protect our planet? How do we work together to build or re-fashion our institutions so that they support a world that leaves no one behind?
Participants will be drawn from all regions and reflect the diversity and richness of the Commonwealth itself. They will be encouraged to engage bravely, to challenge themselves and each other; to generate the energy and ideas needed to lead the transformation of systems and attitudes that are holding us back.
