In September, as the world’s leaders gathered in New York for the UN General Assembly, the Global Citizen Festival brought top artists and 60,000 change makers together on the Great Lawn of Central Park to urge our leaders and fellow citizens to do more to help end extreme poverty.
This advocacy concert celebrated the progress already made in fighting extreme poverty, secured financial commitments for tackling extreme poverty and disease, totaling 1.3 billion USD, and mobilised thousands of ambassadors for change. We united around a simple yet powerful idea: that by giving every child a chance to thrive, our generation can end extreme poverty.
