A large issue that makes people reluctant to adopt the idea of open borders is national identity. As a solution, United Citizens offers international citizenship and asks people to put equality before nationality. This project consists of three sections. The first is a promotional campaign highlighting events such as Brexit, the Trump wall, and the European migration crisis. Through a series of educational talks, United Citizens aims to encourage discussion about the wider consequences these events have on refugees and migrants and possible counteractions. This is followed by a multilingual information book and microsite, which presents open borders as an alternative solution, specifically highlighting its social and economic benefits. The microsite functions as the secondary information point and allows the audience to apply for citizenship. The last includes the citizen ephemera such as stamps, flags, and passports.

This project aims to promote the idea of open borders by creating an international identity. Similar to how national identity is constructive I used tools such as shared language, stamps, flags, iconography to create a shared sense of unity so open borders can exist, similar to the European identity project however on a global scale.
