This book examines the meaning of global citizenship by exploring a self-understanding that focuses on the dynamic process of becoming a citizen of the world. The authors reflect on their own global experiences from different angles: personal, intergenerational, philosophical, metaphorical, and educational. Through this multi-perspective reflection, the authors offer a nuanced conceptualization of global citizenship that transcends the artificiality of national boundaries. Readers are encouraged to move away from the mindset of "we and the other," and move toward the direction of "we;" that is, we are all connected, at the same time affecting and being affected by the other. Only through developing such a mindset can we live meaningfully on "Planet Earth," the common home of humanity.
