About The Collaboration
The “Gloucester Collaboration” is an exciting new program with a mission to enhance the quality of life for residents of each of the thirteen communities named Gloucester around the globe. Officially kicking off in 2022, many Gloucester communities are connecting in fun and interesting ways, learning from each other, discovering similarities, and celebrating differences.
In 2022, the Gloucester Collaboration hosted the inaugural “Global Gloucester Day” celebration on Sept. 3. “Gloucester Day,” an event traditionally celebrated in Gloucester, England, dates to the lifting of the Siege of Gloucester in 1643, when the city held out against Royalist forces during the First English Civil War. Now held on the first Saturday in September, the 2022 version of Gloucester Day was celebrated across the world, and signifies the most important annual celebration for the burgeoning Gloucester Collaboration.
The Duke's Essay Contest
The Gloucester Collaboration is putting early emphasis on engaging the students of the many Gloucesters to support this global community development initiative. Towards that end we are implementing a wonderful idea suggested by HRH Prince Richard called the Duke of Gloucester Essay Contest. Along with helping to introduce the concept of the Collaboration to Gloucester youth, the Duke of Gloucester Essay Contest intends to inspire many great ideas that can be embraced by each of the communities of Gloucester.
