We hear the word “global” a lot nowadays: global warming, global economy, global communications network, global thinking. But what does it really mean to be a citizen of the global village? It means striving to live by values that people of all nations share: values of community responsibility, service, respect, justice, and security. It means honing our skills and knowledge while helping our neighbors, too. It means making the most of diversity within the unity of our common humanity.
The Global Youth Village is a hands-on experience in global citizenship. I am confident that you will discover, as so many before you have, that with trust, cooperation and enthusiasm, you can cross barriers of ethnicity and race, gender and religion, and work together for a better world. Come join us for another exciting summer. We’re not only preparing for the future-we’re creating it!
