  • Choeten Thinley
    To solve individual, family, community, regional, state, national, and global issues; one must understand the global citizenship concept and be responsible for a humanistic approach to holistic development. After going through the lecture and materials that have been provided here, I learned that ultimately the solution lies in the individual. Our individual engagement in line with global citizenship education will have a greater impact in achieving the SDGs at large for sure.

    Thank you for sharing this insightful lecture and educational materials.
