Citizen's voices

Fatoumata Sam Dabo

1. What does global citizenship mean to you?

Being a global citizen means having a right to health, education and a non-violent environment. A global citizen must respect rights and carry out his/her civil duties vis-à-vis the state and society. He or she is entitled to freedom of expression, to participate in the development of his/her community and country, as well as of the world. He or she should seek information, train and share with others to ensure a harmonious development.

2. In what ways are you a global citizen?

We are citizens of the world when we know our rights and duties, and when we carry out our duties and respect others’ rights. The mission of a global citizen is to develop ourselves and to help facilitate the development of the communities within that world so that they may become sustainably autonomous.
