A responsible citizen follows rules and laws. If most people didn’t obey rules and the law there would be chaos as people would not be able to agree on how things should be done and so nothing would get done. There would be conflict which would lead to fighting and may be another world war!
Responsible citizens show manaakitanga. This means they show respect for each other and care for each other. Keeping someone company when they are having a tough time is a way of showing manaakitanga.
If we all try to be responsible citizens, step by step we will grow stronger communities and protect our environment.
