Ecological citizenship cannot be fully articulated in either liberal or civic republican terms. It is, rather, an example and an inflection of ‘post‐cosmopolitan’ citizenship. Ecological citizenship focuses on duties as well as rights, and its conception of political space is not the state or the municipality, or the ideal speech community of cosmopolitanism, but the ‘ecological footprint’.
Keywords: citizenship, citizenship education, cosmopolitanism, ecological citizenship, ecological footprint, environmental citizenship, global warming, justice, liberalism, republicanism, sustainability, sustainable development
