Citizen's voices

1. What does global citizenship mean to you?

Global citizenship means to me to be a human being in the world. We are the best “animals” with the most advanced brains; we can see, we can hear, we can touch, we can remember, we can think.

2. In what ways are you a global citizen?

We are part of the world. If we would like to be sustainable as mankind, we have to look after our planet, stop disturbing each other, live together peacefully and stop thinking that for example this bottle of water belongs to me or you, it belongs to all of us. As we know, every person born dreams about having the best possible life. Therefore they survived, are survivingand will survive. While we are surviving, sometimes wemay do something wrong, without thinking about others. That is why many problems occur.
