CPA ROADSHOWS 

Increasing awareness of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) amongst schools, colleges and universities to inspire the next generation
 

With the Commonwealth’s 53 member countries having a combined population of more than 2.4 billion, of which more than 60% are under 30 years of age, the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) has launched this key initiative to strengthen its outreach to the Commonwealth’s young people.

The goal of the CPA Roadshow is to increase awareness of the important work done by the CPA in promoting democratic governance across the Commonwealth and to connect Parliamentarians with their young people in schools, colleges and universities to inspire the next generation of ‘Young Leaders’. This is a hugely important endeavour. The CPA is proud to have initiated and to lead on this project.

The CPA will be encouraging CPA Branches and Regions to host the CPA Roadshow and will be working with international organisations to partner on this initiative.
