          Abstract

          Global citizenship is still a relatively new concept concerned mainly with the growing prominence of global and development education issues. The importance of this phenomenon is increasing in the area of education, which must be able to respond to the interconnection and interdependency of the current world. There is an effort to support implementation of global issues in the educational process at all its levels, including higher education where the unsatisfactory situation is most visible. Global citizenship is one of the fundamental pillars of global education. Its aim is to show citizenship from a new perspective. It provides information and knowledge about the modern diversified world where each diversity has its own place and importance, and about the problems that have been expanding worldwide. It should bring people to the understanding that they are part of a global entity and so everyone should accept their place and role in it. For this purpose people have to be educated. Therefore, global citizenship education should form an integral part of educational processes at all levels today. The aim of this paper is to present the current situation of global citizenship education and the process of implementation and emphasizing global citizenship at Slovak University of Agriculture, mainly through the critical analyses of the current situation in this field in Slovakia, and selected activities.
