    The Learning Journey of an Active Citizen

    1. Character and Culture

    Culture is shaped by a kind of community contract. This helps people understand, communicate each other and create a feeling of embrace, expectation, belonging, pride, and character. Culture can also create notions of behavior for community cohesion and culture can be used to understand or explain different cultures. Culture is character, it not only stands, but also it develops and changes over time.

    1. Intercultural dialogue

    An active citizen is about bringing dialogue into their life, not just at work, including:

    + Improve their knowledge of the local situation.

    + Improve quality when making decisions.

    + Increase cooperation.

    + Increase pride in the character of where you belong

    + Increase sympathy, tolerance for others, trusting and understanding each other.

    + Create innovations.

    + Increase inclusiveness and equality.

    1. Local and global communities’ connection.

    The ACSE towards citizens who are more actively agreeing with global problems via both training courses and intercultural dialogue, but in its first period, the program focused on inviting participants to practice their perspectives within the local community.

    1. Plan-making for community projects.

    Some key points for students when plan-making for community projects:

    + Practice the skills and knowledge learned in all 4 learning journeys.

    + Identify the personality in which you can contribute (small actions).

    + Identify strategic opportunities for your plan-making for community projects.
