Global Citizenship

GlobalCitizenship

 The principle of basing all government on the consent of the governed is undenied and undeniable. Is democracy a failure? Train up citizens that will make it succeed. — W.E.B. DuBois

We advocate equal global citizenship

All human beings, irrespective of place of birth or any other differences, need to enjoy equal rights as global citizens of a democratic global community.

We support a planetary world view that allows individuals to understand their close connection to the planet and all of humanity and to develop a sense of global identity and solidarity. 

We support global citizenship education as an essential part of education worldwide. 

We are playing a leading role in the campaign for a UN World Citizens’ Initiative. This new tool will enable all world citizens to put forward proposals on important global issues.
