The world today is facing the threat of eminent destruction. Sheer disregard for the environment and increasing political instability have resulted into global concerns like large scale involuntary migration, natural disasters, deforestation, unemployment, inequity, overpopulation, racism, corruption and terrorism. The world has no option but to come together and find immediate solutions by redefining strategies as time is running fast. Secretary General of the UN led an initiative called 'Global Citizen First'. Citizens of today and in particular tomorrow cannot be limited to regional or local awareness. Campaigns world over are required to foster planetary citizenship awareness among children. The present article discusses the need and impact of global citizenship sensitization for children. We, the people, cannot act like an elephant conditioned from infancy that it cannot dissociate itself from bondage of a rope. For the better world, we need to move and think like global citizens.
