FROM CITIZENSHIP TO PLANETIZENSHIP
Planetizens are to the planet what citizens are to the city, meaning that whether you are a human, animal, plant, anything on this planet, you are endowed with rights in our global community. If the citywide and statewide levels are the appropriate scales for coming to democratic decisions on local and national issues, then in order to solve borderless crises, a larger planetary scale is needed.
In addition to being local citizens, we all need to learn to become ethical, inclusive, and respectful planetizens. Youth can be the first Planetizens of the 21st Century and the Model UN can be their laboratory to author the pathway and mandate for the future of the planet, its people and a prospective remodelled version of the United Nations itself!
