Contribution as a Global Citizen in the Globalized Society
A global citizen can contribute to globalized society by developing familiarity to facilitate advancement of values in the global environment. Examples of values that are important in the global environment include religious pluralism, sustainable worldwide economic growth, human rights, prevention of conflicts between countries, humanitarian assistance, environmental protection, gender equity, poverty alleviation, preservation of cultural diverts and elimination of weapons of mass destruction (Israel, 2012). A global citizen can promote these values by engaging in volunteer work in various organizations. Additionally, a global citizen can utilize the technology such as the internet to promote growth by challenging the local government to become proactive in achieving global standards on different areas including human rights, poverty and development (Birdsall, 2013).
