The inspiration behind GWC

Good World Citizen is inspired by a great man who is no longer with us. Prof Abdulaziz Al-Saqqaf, was a visionary who believed that the only way the people of the world can prosper is if each and every one of them was a good world citizen in all senses of the word.
He often spoke about this concept and the intercultural aspects of our joint future to his daughter Haifa, who from a young age grew with the sense of responsibility to the greater good.
He is missed, always loved and his legacy lives on.
