Today the Global Citizenship Forum, organized and held by the British Council, London, will start in London. 60 participans from all over the world will discuss issues around global citizenship and hopefully we come up with some interesting thoughts and ideas.
Here is the idea what global citizenship means to British Council:
Global citizens, in all aspects of their life,
- take individual responsibility for building a better world, based on shared universal values, and universally acknowledged legal and ethical standards;
- advocate the principles, benefits and successes of global citizenship, and build alliances that positively influence policy and actions to improve the world;
- take action, with other individuals, with civil society, with businesses and governments, to contribute to improved global security, greater prosperity, and sustainable development.
Responsibility and taking action are the most important things for me. You can only drive and achieve change when you yourself live this change and when you yourself stand up for it!
Really looking forward to some interesting 3 days … stay tuned, I will follow up with some interviews and discussions!
