Lighthouse Café – Citizenship
January 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0
For the first café of 2021, please join us for an informal discussion of citizenship. What is it? How is it bestowed? What does it require? What is the character of a citizen?
Migration, people can become citizens long after birth, but what does this mean? People can be born under a flag and not be a citizen of that land. So citizenship is by birth, by decree or by inheritance?
Moving away from countries and borders, what about citizenship of the 3rd horizon, of the Earth, of the Solar System?
“Citizenship comes from the Latin word for city, because in the earlier days of human governments, people identified themselves as belonging to cities more than countries. … Citizenship is more than merely living somewhere.”
