African & African-Caribbean Design Diaspora Partners: Royal Commonwealth Society

Royal Commonwealth Society

The Royal Commonwealth Society is an international education charity. With a remit to promote international understanding across the Commonwealth, especially among young people, the RCS has an impressive portfolio of charitable activities.

Our Young Commonwealth Competitions encourage thousands of young people to respond to global challenges through annual creative writing, film and photographic awards. The Nkabom Commonwealth Youth Leadership Programme unites 18-to 25-year-olds from across the globe in a different Commonwealth location every two years. Alumni then join an international, proactive network of emerging leaders.

Commonwealth Youth Summits give schoolchildren across the UK a chance to learn about international issues in an interactive and meaningful forum. Playing the roles of leaders, foreign ministers or journalists, they enact a Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting and have the opportunity to put their views to senior members of the Commonwealth and UK government.
