The Content Design Committee
The Commonwealth People’s Forum (CPF) 2015 will be designed and delivered through an inclusive approach to ensure that input from non-state actors from across the Commonwealth is captured and the CPF 2015 reflects experiences from all regions of the Commonwealth. It is expected that CPF 2015 will have a significant local focus.
To facilitate this, a Content Design Committee has been established, which will be moderated by the Foundation. The CPF Sub-Committee Chair and selected members of civil society organisations (CSOs) drawn from across the Commonwealth will be members of the Committee – three from the host country, including one from the Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) sector. All members of the Committee are volunteers and will have an advisory role. They will provide technical input and advice on the design the CPF 2015 programme.
