My role as a global citizen
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: Nov 30, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

My role as a global citizen The world nowadays is facing many problems; the ongoing or potential conflicts pose danger to the civilian development and peaceful cohabitation, so we should have enough knowledge for solve them. Avoiding them is possible through the way of active diplomatic intervention. The young generation is capable of pursuing a lot of things. Why is it good to understand the World Citizenship? Because a peace will be easy to achieve, if we realize that we are human beings with equal rights. A peace is the prosperity. Also a global citizen should equally take care of every point in the world because it’s its property and property, as Machiavelli says, is more keen sense than parental love. A world citizenship doesn’t mean the loss of nationality, but to share the suffering or joys happened on the other part of the world and to feel its influence as locals. A world citizenship increases human responsibilities. Therefore nowadays youth people are more sensitive towards the world than their ancestors. Without a global citizenship we couldn’t use wealth created by other people, we would be less open-minded. A global citizenship develops national interests instead suppressing them. A world citizenship is a freedom because nowadays our affiliation to the world is heightened. We become more informed and educated because we can use world’s achievements without any borders. And the education is freedom. But this all is bilateral. With each of our existences we enrich the world knowledge. We share our experience to others, who have not been in our countries; who have not had such a life as we lived. People are equally different. So each difference of us creates a phenomenon of global citizenship. Each of the mentioned reasons is the main point of the project. During the activities was highlighted the main idea of global citizenship, its positive and negative sides and we will discuss about the world future with such a strong process of globalization.
