  • Nguyen Thi Ngoc Anh
    I've been studying global citizenship and global competence. The video explains what are global issues, such as overcoming poverty, demanding equity, and protecting the environment, in a clear and concise manner. As global citizens, we must recognize our place in the global family. Others are affected by our decisions and behaviors as well. It is each of our responsibilities to ensure that the world is just, peaceful, and sustainable, not just for ourselves but also for future generations.
