Take Action

“At key moments in history, humanity has come together to achieve extraordinary things," Hugh Evans tells Hozier. "We're planning the most ambitious campaign Global Citizen has ever embarked upon."

There are 736 million people who live on less than $1.90 per day, while 26 people hold as much wealth as 50% of the planet’s population. And even worse? The climate crisis is already hitting the poorest communities first. This is an injustice, and one that could be tackled by 2030 if world leaders step up. Sign our petition now to call on those in power — from governments and institutions to big businesses and billionaires — to take action immediately.
