Citizen’s voices

1. What does global citizenship mean to you?

I think that I am a citizen among the people on earth. So we have to help each other in terms of creating a good environment, a peaceful global society and economic equality. We have to learn and recognise life in diverse multicultural societies; I think that the recognition of differences is a very significant thing.

2. In what ways are you a global citizen?

For me, I have contributed in various ways. To be a global citizen, activities such as planting a tree in order to maintain the natural environment and protect it is important. Secondly, sharing my knowledge and wisdom with colleagues, friends, and students is a part of my contribution. Thirdly, maintaining local culture, norms and beliefs in a positive way; I think those things are a part of our global heritage.
