If I say “being a global citizen”, they say... Highlights from IES Barri del Carme Valencia

Students from the 2nd ESO classes (A and B, about 13 years old) have given a thought about what global citizenship means for them:

Jaime thinks that being a citizen of the world means  being accepted by the others, being one more among them;  freedom of speech, respect and equality.

For Aitana, global citizenship means saying no to any form of violence; reaching a world free of poverty; a sustainable developed world (at economic, social, cultural, environmental levels).

Jenn adds that being world citizen means helping other people, becoming the best possible person that we would be with our rights but with our dutys also.

Following this line of thought, for Celia to be a global citizen means being intelligent (not only clever), looking for the benefit of all, thinking about the others first; fighting for the rights; giving light to the others' darkness; trying to be happier.

Maria thinks that world citizenship means rights, life, justice, coexistence.

Melchor considers that being a global citizen is a prize because he would be able to help others, Africa children for example.

Sofia sees the world as locked with a  key with all the people, citizens of the one world, inside it (work pictured).
