WHY

GLOBAL

CITIZENSHIP?

GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP

refers to a sense of

belonging to a common

humanity and a way of

understanding, acting and

relating oneself to others and

the environment, based on

universal values. Recognition

of the interdependency

and interconnectedness in

political, social, economic,

and cultural arenas brings us

to realize that we are tied

together beyond borders.

As the challenges we

face are interconnected

and intrinsically global,

Sustainable Development

Goals(SDGs) works as a

compass for our decisions

and policymaking.

Therefore, reducing the gap

between the SDGs and the

reality to ultimately achieve

these goals will be the big

task for us and the future

generations.

Development can only

be sustained if there are

continuous efforts toward

Gender Equality and

Women’s Empowerment.

Despite the inherent link

between gender equality and

sustainable development of

societies, it is clear that the

global community still has

significant steps to take to

ensure that women are equal,

included, and empowered.

We need concerted efforts

as a whole community to

seek solutions, and global

citizenship serves as a tool

to overcome the challenges

and to reach the globally

agreed goals to build a more

just, peaceful and sustainable

society for all.
