Attending CHOGM2022 in Kigali, Rwanda

The 2022 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, also known as CHOGM 2022, was the 26th Meeting of the Heads of Government of the Commonwealth of Nations. The meeting was originally scheduled for 26–27 June 2020 preceded by various forums between 22–25 June, but was postponed twice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. On 31 January 2022, it was announced that the meeting would be held on 24 and 25 June 2022 and the pre-meeting forums held from 20 to 23 June.

The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) is a pivotal agenda-setting and decision-making space for the diverse community of 56 Commonwealth countries. With varying economic statuses and vast oceans between them, the leaders meet every two years to explore how they can pool their resources and innovations to transform joint challenges into exciting opportunities.

The Commonwealth Youth Forum that happened from June 19 till 21, brought together young leaders from across the Commonwealth to exchange ideas, build networks, identify and debate development issues, challenges, and opportunities, agree on youth-led initiatives to mitigate challenges facing young people and create opportunities to enhance their lives. We were honored to be part.
