33Fifty: The creation of the Baton Book!

33Fifty: The creation of the Commonwealth Baton Book

The Baton Book, which has been created as part of the 33Fifty project, is travelling with the Queen's Baton Relay, visiting the 70 nations and territories of the Commonwealth in the run up to the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. 

The book has a page dedicated to each of the nations and territories of the Commonwealth. In every place the Book visits a young person will be asked to write a message on the relevant page. At the end of its journey the book will be presented to the participants at the beginning of 33Fifty before they begin their investigation into the challenge, and will inspire them to continue to collaborate once the programme is over.


The book has already been well received in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. The photo aboves shows a young woman holding the Baton and the book in Bangladesh.

What is 33Fifty?

33Fifty is a leadership programme for young Commonwealth citizens aged between 18 and 25 which grew out of CSCLeaders 2013. It aims to develop young people into leaders who bring people together, reconcile differences and lead change - leaders who share the values of the Commonwealth and can use its networks effectively.

The four-day programme will run every four years, coinciding with the Commonwealth Games, forming part of the official programme of cultural and educational events which runs parallel to the Games. 33Fifty will be delivered by a partnership between the Royal Commonwealth Society and Common Purpose.
