Why Pia Gralki is a Global Citizen

Understanding yourself as a global citizen requires courage. For me, that means connecting yourself to the world – and taking responsibility. In order to master the challenges ahead, we need a strong community as a global network to ensure that we can act on these challenges together. It‘s the only way can we gather the courage it takes to change this world for the better.
