By definition, active citizenship is a combination of knowledge, attitude, skills and actions to play an active role in their local communities and democracy at all levels. The area of activity does not matter. Active citizenship can be taking part in a political organisation, sign a petition in Change.org to clean up a river, go to a protest march or mobilise an initiative to vote in Congress. In this regard, Active citizenship it is the commitment to the welfare of society and, at the same time, one of the most important steps towards healthy democracies (more than just placing a mark on a voting slip).
