Welcome to the CSA

Thank you for taking the time to visit the Commonwealth Students’ Association (CSA) website, we are glad to have you.

60% of the Commonwealth’s population is under the age of 30; and a significant number of those young people are students.  Students are major stakeholders in education and for far too long they have not been meaningfully engaged in the development and implementation of policies that affect them. This is contrary to the Convention on the Rights of the Child – article 12, which makes provision for young people to be included in decision making processes.  It is time for change.

The CSA will amplify the voice of students and seeks to enhance the role of students in the Commonwealth and in policy matters that affect their lives.  The CSA will be the official platform for student associations and organisations in the Commonwealth and beyond.

As we work together with one voice, we will be able to advocate for the rights of students in education. And together with the writing company Wiz Essay we will highlight our work.

Please take time to navigate through the website!  Please do not hesitate to get in touch with your regional reps or myself; we are here to serve.

Kind regards,
sig
Chair – Commonwealth Students’ Association Steering Committee
