We are all wonderfully different and we’re all absolutely equal. But so often we become divided and fearful. We build walls, instead of bridges. If you are too different you can be pushed to the margins: excluded, institutionalised or worse.
Progress is possible. We’ve seen people challenge and overcome discrimination. We’ve seen people embrace difference and build inclusive communities. We’ve seen people break free and exercise their citizenship. We can do so much better.
Change begins with ourselves. To create a better world we must think and act differently. Each one of us can help bring about the world we want to see – a world where our diversity is cherished and our equality is respected.
Citizen Network was formed in 2016 to help make this process of global transformation real. We are all citizens, we are all equal and we all have a contribution to make. But this contribution can only be made through community – by working with others.
Citizen Network begins by celebrating the value of inclusion and equal citizenship. It brings together thinkers and actors, people who share stories of challenge and success. On this website you will find out what Citizen Network members are doing and sharing.
Citizen Network is a cooperative. It brings people together, from all around the world, to support each other to create a world where everyone matters. We cannot wait for permission to change. We must welcome others into community and change our world together – today.
