Description What is it to be a global citizen in a world faced by challenges like climate change, extreme poverty, nuclear destruction and the exploitation of women and children? And what can global citizens do to address these challenges? Interesting examples of how global citizens can help promote change are appearing around the world (such as Occupy, Pussyhat Project and #MeToo). These show how global citizens can use new technological platforms to build support for action to address global challenges.
