What does it mean to be a citizen of the world?

What does it mean to be a citizen of the world? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Hugh Evans started a movement that mobilizes "global citizens," people who self-identify first and foremost not as members of a state, nation or tribe but as members of the human race.
