What is Global Citizenship?
“Global Citizenship is both an awareness and act of commitment rooted in the spirit of global consciousness and interconnectedness of the world. It recognizes the need to understand global realities and social responsibilities and motivates the people to develop mindset as citizens of the world with human and ethical values. It promotes the collective community social responsibilities and actions towards justice, peace and sustainability of life by citizens as change agents.”
- Tokyo statement on Global Citizenship, APAY
The event was in line with the Asia & Pacific Alliance of YMCAs (APAY) Green Challenge 2013, its objective is to make youths aware of their responsibility towards the environment and society.
The programme included a talk on Global Citizenship Education with some interactive fun games thrown in. The highlight was for all the participants to try hands-on go green activities, ie making Bokashi (kitchen waste composit), EM Mudballs, Biogas, Enzyme, and Organic Farming.
The organizing committee had also created a logo with our hash tag term for our go green events. Find us on Facebook and Instagram at #ymcagogreen for more pictures and information.
