This St David's Day, help us celebrate Wales's positive impact across the world and the people that make it possible.

On 1 March, we will celebrate St David’s Day by bringing to life the brilliant and far-reaching work done internationally by Welsh people and anyone connected to Wales, through content shared on Twitter and Facebook and using #GlobalStDavids.

Staff in the UK Government’s international embassies together with our armed forces and humanitarian workers will be part of this global celebration and we’d love you to join in.
