Commonwealth100 Online Leadership Development course for young people from Commonwealth Countries

Application Deadline: Ongoing

Over 60% of the population of the Commonwealth is under 30. That’s 1.2 billion young people. By the Commonwealth centenary in 2031, they will be its leaders. Commonwealth100 introduces the idea of Open Source Leadership to maximize the impact of young leaders in both their professional and civic lives.

Commonwealth100 is open to young leaders, who are from a Commonwealth country, or who currently live, work or study in a Commonwealth country.

Commonwealth100 Programme Outcomes–
  • Produce a more socially-conscious generation of leaders
  • Create a network of young leaders in touch with each other
  • Foster current and future global partnerships between young leaders
  • Frame a fresh, bold, principled, networked Commonwealth of the future

Open Source Leadership

Many young people today recognize that we need a new approach to leadership. That’s why we worked with over 1,000 young leaders to discover the skills we need when Commonwealth celebrates its centenary in 2031.

The result is Open Source Leadership.

Open Source Leadership is a new, crowd-sourced model for leadership, which aims to equip you with the competencies you need to be successful in a world that is volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (what many call the VUCA world).


Commonwealth100 is open to young people, aged 18+, from across the Commonwealth. You may be at the beginning of your career or in Higher or Further Education.


The programme is hosted online.


The programme runs every month for three weeks and can be completed flexibly. It takes between three to six hours to complete the course. The current course dates are:

15 June–6 July
13 July–3 August
10 August–31 August
7 September–28 September

This will continue to run on a similar pattern through 2020.
