You can win anything from gift cards and subscriptions to exclusive VIP experiences and tickets to our events.

How will Global Citizen Live help to defend the world and defeat poverty?
Global Citizen Live is part of Global Citizen’s overarching Recovery Plan for the World, a year-long campaign with events to help kickstart a global recovery from COVID-19 and its impacts.
Ahead of October’s G20 Summit, and COP26 in November, the Global Citizen Live campaign will call on world leaders, major corporations and foundations to defend the planet and defeat poverty in several key ways. These include:
- Helping end the pandemic by donating at least 1 billion doses to those most in need by September.
- Reverting the hunger crisis facing the 41 million people on the brink of starvation by contributing at least $6 billion to famine relief efforts.
- Resuming education by getting 4.5 million kids most in need back to learning by contributing $400 million towards education.
- Combating climate change by getting the world’s largest companies to join the Race to Zero this year. Global Citizen will call on private sector leaders to commit to developing verified science-based targets to reach net zero emissions by 2030, in line with the Paris Agreement.
- Driving an equitable recovery for all through mobilizing $250 million to support COVID-19 response efforts, focused on people-centered justice, gender equality, racial equity, LGBTIQ+ rights, and disabled persons.
We wouldn’t be able to make these calls without your voice — so sign-up to become a Global Citizen and take action. You can be a part of a once-in-a-lifetime event, and this crucial opportunity to defend the planet and defeat poverty.
