Commonwealth Day 2021
Let us now stand to pledge ourselves afresh to uphold and serve the values and fellowship of the Commonwealth.
We affirm that every person possesses unique worth and dignity. We affirm our respect for nature, and that we will be stewards of the earth by caring for every part of it, and for it as a whole. We affirm our belief in justice for everyone, and peace among peoples and nations. Joining together in kinship and affinity, in diversity and unity, as members of a worldwide family of nations, we build on shared inheritances. We cooperate with mutual respect and goodwill to deliver a common future for the good of all. Through Commonwealth connection we learn from one another, and innovate to transform our communities, our nations and our world.
We affirm our belief in the Commonwealth as a powerful influence for good
in the world, and pledge ourselves to its service, now and for the future.
