Bill Gates is coming to London, and he wants to hear from YOU

Guess what, London? Bill Gates is in town, and he wants to talk with you. 

Bill Gates is one of the most iconic global citizens going around - using his time, voice (and money!) to make the world a better place. 

On Tuesday 23rd June, Bill will be in London town to share his experiences and talk about why we need everyone (that means you and me) to come together and act as global citizens. You have the opportunity to ask the big man a question. Any question! Can we really end extreme poverty? How do we have wifi on planes but not everyone has access to clean water? How does my action here in the UK make a difference? Would you ever consider naming your daughter Pearly? Okay maybe not the latter, but you get the idea. 

Now I know what you’re thinking, “I don’t live in London, and even if I did, I can’t skip work/school/the pub on a Tuesday morning!”. But come on, don’t you think that Mr Gates is a little more technologically advanced than that? The full event will be streamed live (and available to watch after) via the Global Citizen Facebook page. Not only that, but you can submit your question to Bill and there’s a chance we’ll read it out to him for you.  

On June 23rd, Bill Gates could change your perspective on some of the world’s most pressing issues. Submit your question and tune in.
