Am I and active Citizen?
Subject: Are U a good Citizen?
A good citizen is someone who knows his rights, responsabilities and follow it. A good citizen tolerates other citizens and helps them. Respects symbols on the streets, helps seniors, not drive faster and stuff. A good citizen is a participatory person, who votes, Takes his own decisions.
In summary, I consider that I'm a good citizen because I don't throw litter on the streets. I try to recycle paper of my old notebook. I study, I'm educated, reliable, fair, solidarie.
I try to follow the rules, like not drinking alcoholic beverages because I under age, respect my neighboors not making noise at night, respect people's opinions, I tolerate the color skin of another person, I try to use my cycle inside of taking bus.
Sometimes I participate in the programming of the city it's very fun to participate in this activities, For example: I went to 'Ciclovia Nocturna', Concerts in 'La Media Torta', Simon Bolivar Park with my friends and sometimes with my family.

A good citizen cares about his/her city. Not only politics and rules ( rights, duties) but the environment too. The create ways ti have a clean city. First, sure, they maintain their places clean and try to clean most the can.
In my neighborhood there's a group that all Sundays the people walk around the neighborhood and wipe the streets. Also they teach the community how to maintain a nice city.
I guess that to become a good citizen we need to love and accept our place, and the only way is to maintain it clean; it works if we have the intention to make it. It's healthy and help us to love and be proud of the city.

Active citizens can change the world. An active citizen is a person who is hardworking, helpful and easygoing. When a person tolerates other people's opinions and helps to someone who needs him, that person is an active citizen. Little things like do not drop litter in the street help to have a better place to live. Also to know about different cultures is a good begining to understand that all we are different, and to learn to respect everybody. In conclusion, a little change in our mind and behavior can make of our planet a place of opportunities for all; tolerate other people, take care of the environment and learn about other cultures are things I am trying to do every day to be an active citizen.

actually it's very important tolerate other cultures because if we see other different look we think that it's terrible but this would be bad we don't know about other thinking.

A real Active Citizen has to be a team player in society. As we know, a citizen is someone who belongs to a community, but for the personal and social success, he needs to work well with other people. Being an Active Citizen is about working with others to get common goals, leading and playing its own role in the society. Concluding, as a personal opinion, people have to be more active in society to reach common objetives, after all, I think this is one of the many things I have to work with to be a real Active Citizen.

It is true, to have a real change in the world we need to work together, the problem is that not all people think in the benefit of the society, most of them think in his own benefit.
Subject: an active citizen
people do know what an active citizen is or do not want to know.
every day i observe persons that have taken a role in the city like who forget to express ideas or who do not remember to care of the enviroment, people know that we have responsabilities with the society and the rural or urban enviroment but insted of help this it is preferable to ignore that, i try to help and be a good citizen almost avery day however it is not enought, thorw papers on the streets and be intolerant is usually a normal life.
it is not hard to understand and it is in our knowladge what minds an active citizen so why do not we practice? it is so easy and it is the time.
