Colours of the Commonwealth Listen to what the Colours of the Commonwealth learning experience is all about
Glasgow will host the Commonwealth Games in 2014. Scotland is one of the 71 nations and territories that will participate in the games. These nations and territories work together to promote peace, democracy, sustainable development, human rights and health, and to share ideas, knowledge and experience. It is hoped that learners from schools across Scotland will learn together to share creative solutions to design problems as we upcycle materials to create National flowers from the Commonwealth. These flowers will promote the Convention of the Rights of the Child and will be assembled to create a peaceful flower garden in Glasgow. This set of colour creativity challenges will give you the opportunity to make a creative and peaceful contribution to the 2014 countdown.
