Citizen's voices

1. What does global citizenship mean to you?

It typically defi nes a person who places their identity with a “global community” above their identity as a citizen of a particular nation or place. The idea is that one’s identity transcends geography or political borders and that responsibilities or rights are or can be derived from membership in a broader class: “humanity”. This does not mean that such a person denounces or waives their nationality or other, more local identities, but such identities are given “second place” to their membership in a global community.

2. In what ways are you a global citizen?

I respect all regions, religions and humanity in the world.
