This idea on Commonwealth Youth Movement came about when I was attending a town hall with Tim Hitchens (CEO, Commonwealth Summit 2018) and Kishva Ambigapathy (Chairperson, Commonwealth Youth Council) on 18 July 2017 in Kuala Lumpur. During the engaging session with both Commonwealth leaders, it dawned on me that while there's much excitement and enthusiasm during the event, the conversation will quickly die off once the event is over. There must be a better way to not only continue the conversations on Commonwealth but to turn the ideas into action. After pitching to both Tim and Kishva, I told them I write to them on an idea to democratise access to the Commonwealth. And so, I did. 8 days later, after sharing the idea with Coordinator of Commonwealth Youth Council, I'd like to share it with you.
What do you think of this idea? Is it feasible? Am I missing out on any key points? Let me know in the comment section below.
