"Growing Global Citizens", an article by Jaci Maurer, director of the Lehman College Child Care Center.
What is a Global Citizen? Global Citizenship is an idea that goes beyond simply knowing that we are citizens of the world to an acknowledgement of our responsibilities both to each other and to the Earth itself. Global Citizenship requires understanding the need to tackle injustice and inequality and having the desire and ability to work actively to do so. It is about valuing the Earth as precious and unique, as well as safeguarding the future for those in the next generations. Global Citizenship is a way of thinking and behaving. It is an outlook on life—a belief that we can make a difference.
