Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting

The Commonwealth People’s Forum will occur in the week preceding CHOGM and is organised by the Commonwealth Foundation and hosted by the Western Australian Council of Social Service with the support of the Australian Government and the Western Australian Government.

The People’s Forum will aim to raise the profile of civil society organisations and to strengthen links between them and the private and public sectors, as well as youth. It will also seek to create opportunities for dialogue between civil society and government ministers on priority issues in the Commonwealth.

Inputs from the People’s Forum will be presented for discussion at the Round Table with Foreign Ministers.

The Council of Churches WA will be represented by our Ecumenical Ministry Officer, Rev’d Isobelle Shortreed, and you are invited to raise any matters that you might like included at the Round Table with her on 08 93806122 or email
