The 21st century has ushered in new opportunities as well as great challenges to global citizenship. Good citizenship in the modern world is local and it is global; it requires the ability to transcend boundaries, whether concrete or imagined, literary or philosophical, to resolve issues that separate individuals and communities, governments and nations, religious and political groups. "Global Citizenship for the 21st Century" encourages interdisciplinary dialogue about global citizenship in all its variations and manifestations. What are the practical and theoretical implications of global citizenship to individuals, to communities, to nations, to organizations and to businesses? How do we teach, foster, and prepare global citizens? What are the skills and competencies of a global citizen? What are the ethical, philosophical, economic, social, political and environmental responsibilities of global citizenship? These are among the questions we seek to explore at this interdisciplinary conference November 15-16, 2009, on the campus of California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.
