The Global Citizen Prize is the first major event of our 2020 campaign, Global Goal Live: The Possible Dream. In partnership with Teneo, the global CEO advisory firm, we’re launching our biggest campaign yet.
In the year-long campaign, which comes with just 10 years left to achieve the UN’s Global Goals, we’ll be calling on governments, philanthropists, and the private sector to step forward, take responsibility for the Global Goals, and provide the $350 billion needed annually for people and the planet to achieve the Global Goals in the world’s poorest countries.
The campaign will culminate on Sept. 26 2020, with a historic 10-hour global media event showcasing simultaneous festivals from New York City and Lagos, Nigeria — as well as satellite events in Seoul and to-be-announced cities in Latin America and Europe.
We can’t wait for you to join us!
