The High Commissioner for the Republic of Rwanda to the UK, and non-resident Ambassador to Ireland, Her Excellency Yamina Karitanyi, speaks to Cumberland Lodge Chief Executive, Edmund Newell, as part of the Cumberland Lodge 'Commonwealth Futures: Youth Perspectives' symposium held on 1-3 December 2019.

Her Excellency discusses the important role of young people in the Commonwealth, and the particular importance of ICT innovation and the rule of law for Commonwealth futures.

This podcast was recorded at Cumberland Lodge on 3 December, as part of a meeting of young leaders and students from across the Commonwealth, organised in partnership with the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU), the British Council and the Commonwealth Secretariat.

The conference gave young participants the opportunity to contribute thoughts and ideas on policy documents prepared by a youth-led task force for the 12th Commonwealth Youth Forum that will run alongside the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Rwanda in June 2020.
