Global Citizen Live coincides with the United Nations General Assembly, prior to the G20 meeting in October and the major climate conference COP26 in November. Focused on vaccine equity, famine, and climate change, Global Citizen Live will call on leaders to deliver 1 billion vaccines to the poorest countries by the end of September and meals for the 41 million people on the brink of famine, as well as to help curb emissions by joining the Race to Zero and pledging a combined total of 1 billion trees by 2022 in support of 1t.org.

In the US, Global Citizen is calling on the Biden administration to:

  • Rapidly increase vaccine access by urgently sharing a total of at least 350 million COVID-19 vaccine doses with the poorest countries by the end of September. 
  • Increase US climate financing by committing to reach $40 billion per year through public and private financing.
