Summary of Section Two
As we have seen, being a global citizen means a multitude of things to different people. Our understandings are often influenced by our current experience and knowledge. Also, how we as individuals are able to act is highly dependent on our personal circumstances.
A useful definition, that allows for this diversity of circumstance and experience states,
"A global citizen is constituted by their engaged commitment and awareness of global challenges. Informal and lifelong learning plays a vital role in raising awareness and developing the necessary (social and personal) skills of global citizens." (2011, Susa R. and Vodopivec B., National Identity in the Context of Global Citizenship)
