The basic competence of “Global citizenship” is to gather various general principles closely related: Human Rights, democratic principles, equality between men and women, solidarity, environmental protection, universal accessibility and design for everyone and promotion of a culture of peace. The Bologna Declaration affirms "A Europe of Knowledge is now widely recognised as an irreplaceable factor for social and human growth and as an indispensable component to consolidate and enrich the European citizenship, capable of giving its citizens the necessary competencies to face the challenges of the new millennium, together with an awareness of shared values and belonging to a common social and cultural space". This piece of work introduces how this basic competence is developed into an online subject while at the same time some suggestions and new principles are offered for similar purposes.
New technologies provide tools and opportunities that often break the limits, boundaries or self-censorship of those who think that its subject has no place in regard to citizenship issues such as justice, gratitude, commitment, etc.. The unlimited resources of the Internet, offer many opportunities to engage in partnerships of all kinds, countless opportunities to participate in more stable cyberaction or commitments as virtual volunteering, etc. Certainly offer proposals or suggestions for any qualification and subject present in the branches of science, health, technical, humanities, education, social, legal and business. Fortunately, as a result of this awakening to the potential of the digital environment activist, also surprised the students with experiences of citizen engagement and initiatives to the university community partners.
