The world faces global challenges, which have a broad range from public to private law, every day. As we take a glance at the scope of global issues, we realize the need for a concept of global citizenship in particular areas. With the development of technology and international communications, people started seeking some fundamental standards that they can meet regardless which State they are in. At this point, the idea of global citizenship arises to provide the pursuit of mankind about the issues in question. The need for actions from perspective of youth, regarding how we think and act, will be the main step to broaden out visions for global solutions. In order to come up with these convincing global solutions, domestic law, international law, as well as the opinions of youth should be observed.
