    Through this program, I regained my faith in life. Because seeing that our Mongolian society is full of unfair bribery and lies, I was very depressed and wanted to flee the country. But by studying this program, I have a chance to learn a lot.

    I must say that this course helped me through a lot. It helped me understand the Sustainable Developmental Goals as well as on how to be a better global citizen.
    MUHAMMAD NOOR HAFIS BIN MOHD ARIS is my name. I received a lot of feedback throughout the session that I signed for, which was about being global citizens for a sustainable world. Readers should be aware that I am a student at the University of Malaya and that I am from a rural location. Because I don't have a robust internet connection, I have to go out and obtain it. When I continue my studies at the University of Malaya, I will be able to enrol in a variety of classes, including this one.To avoid societal violence, this class pursues me. My involvement in this has taught me how to be a better person and a more useful human being in the future. as well as current events This has made me realise that being a wonderful human being is extremely difficult, and not everyone is capable of carrying such a tremendous burden. This lesson has also opened the ground for me to develop into a human being capable of competing in numerous areas as a global citizen.I now live in one of the developing countries that is capable of competing worldwide. However, if our generation's young people are always striving to be global human beings, it is not inconceivable that this country will achieve greater global ututh.Classes like this, in my opinion, should be increased, and students as well as adults should attend and participate in them. Everything I learn in this class benefits me in some way in my life. Learning is not a waste of time for me, but rather an investment. because the required knowledge will not be lost to the passage of time For me, the knowledge I've gained now will be extremely beneficial not just in the present but also in the future. As a result, this type of lesson is quite beneficial and should be continued. That is my point of view about the class.It is intended that this may be stressed in all aspects and developed to give young people early exposure to how to become community members.
