So, onto the nitty gritty: how exactly do you earn tickets? GREAT question!
All you have to do is click here. That takes you to our Global Citizen Live website, where we have all kinds of useful info about the night. All you have to do is take the actions on gender equality, education access, nutrition, and global health.
When we say “taking action,” we mean sending tweets, signing petitions, sending emails, and generally getting noisy through our platform to let world leaders know what we global citizens really care about.
We’re all about raising our voices together, so every single tweet, email, and petition signature goes a long way to driving change.
Once you’ve taken all the actions, you'll be able to enter a big prize draw.
If you’ve got any more questions, check out our FAQs here.
What are these actions about?
There’s actually a very good reason that we’re heading to Brixton on April 17 — it also happens to be when all the leaders of the Commonwealth are in London, getting ready to meet for the Commonwealth Summit to discuss how to solve some of the world’s biggest issues.
Global Citizen is focussing our efforts on four key issues in the lead up to the Commonwealth Summit that we want leaders to focus on: combating gender discrimination; expanding access to education; ending hunger; and improving global health — including by tackling poor vision and preventable diseases, like polio, malaria, and neglected tropical diseases (NTDs).
You can learn more about what we’re campaigning on for the Commonwealth Summit here. And find out all about what impact we’re already having around the world here (hint: so far, more than 13 million actions have been taken by Global Citizens, leading to $35 billion commitments being made by world leaders, which are set to affect 1.75 billion lives by 2030.)
So what are you waiting for, click here, enter your email, take action, change the world, and earn tickets to one amazing night.
See you in Brixton!
