WHAT MAKES A GLOBAL CITIZEN?

By choice or by force, we have to become a global citizen. If one is not a global citizen there is no way s/he can survive. We are getting impacted by whatever is happening globally so every aspect of life is getting affected. Having said that, to be an effective global citizen, the first thing we have to do is to be a local citizen. We have to know where we come from, about our roots and background. Only after understanding these factors, one can become an effective global citizen.

To be able to use one’s platform to speak up against the injustices and ills of the world is the major characteristic of a global citizen. As much as there are problems faced by us in our country, we need to empathise with the sufferings of other parts of the world as well. That is when you are a global citizen. The world is going through a major environment crisis and to do our bit in helping the world be more sustainable can be a great start to being a global citizen. I’d like to believe I am a global citizen but that is for all of you to say.

In this day and age when technology connects us globally, I believe everyone is a global citizen, so I also identify as one. Because the scale at which you choose to engage in conversation about the broader global issues, differs from person to person. Thanks to social media I am connected to the global platform of news, media, and entertainment which gives me the information that I can further choose to share (or not share) widely. 

I believe knowledge is power and my way of contributing to a larger purpose is by engaging in conversations with the younger generation, particularly children, about issues that affect us at a global scale in a manner that they can understand. There is so much misinformation out there and information overdose. So, it’s important for us to have conversations with young minds from early on so that they can get the right information and become aware of their responsibilities as a global citizen early on. I believe this has been my biggest contribution as a global citizen.

As far as we know, humans may be the only species with a global/universal consciousness. We have a vast understanding and awareness of the world we live in and the universe beyond us. With such staggering sense of our existence, it becomes a moral obligation to live a life that serves a global purpose that attends beyond our individual/national needs. Here’s hoping I can contribute to this global movement.
