We live in the twenty-first century where change occurs very quickly and living in such a fast-changing world we must decide to live with a sense of universal responsibility, identifying ourselves with the whole global community as well as with our local communities. We are at the same time citizens of different nations and of one world in which the local and global are intertwined. Learning to move with the times, understanding the fundamental knowledge of our day, learning how to share in the governance of our society, and showing solidarity - these are the components of learning how to live together as human beings as well as the broad guidelines for responsible scientific citizenship education. Keywords: Nanoeducation, responsible scientific citizenship, intellectual society, sustainable democratic community
