Global Citizenship and the Environment
We live in big cities… but are we still lonely?
The UK.. One of the most densely populated areas on the planet Do we really get on with our neighbours? Do we feel isolated sometimes? Do we live in a local community? What have I got in common with someone that lives on the other side of my street, never mind the other side of the world!
Where do we live?
But really…where do we live?
Global Citizens… Imagine a world where no countries existed… What makes us ‘global citizens’? What are the things that all humans share? Human Rights Equality Resources
The Global Citizen Respect Fellowship Sympathy Environment Responsibility There is no global governing body Global Organisation include Amnesty International and Greenpeace
The Global Citizen… Reducing Inequality Inequality – each and every human being on the planet Inequality – reducing environmental destruction Why? What would happen if we don’t care any more?

The Global Citizen… Are they responsible? Is it a bit bland? Where is the identity and culture? Can we have a national identity and a global identity? Am I a Global Citizen? Is it my responsibility to care for the planet?
