Global Citizens won today in a BIG way
Access to Education and Vaccines Matter
Once again, Global Citizens have come together and demonstrated the power of our collective voice.
As you know by now increasing access to vaccines and education are two of our biggest priorities at this year's Global Citizen Festival. We know that we must address both to make a dent on extreme poverty. That's why we've been campaigning by rounding up Global Citizens to tweet at world leaders like Norway's Prime Minister Erna Solberg.
Global Citizens Take Action
Norway's Prime Minister Erna Solberg has long been an advocate for human rights and a supporter of both the Global Partnership for Education and GAVI, the Vaccine Alliance. To let her know she has our full support and gratitude for her work on both fronts, AND to invite her to this year's festival, Global Citizens have spoken out in a BIG way, and when we say big we're talking about over 6,500 tweets.
These are just a couple:
The Prime Minister Makes an Exciting Announcement
With that kind of racket, you know we were bound to get the Prime Minister's attention.
She heard us loud and clear.
Our team was also thrilled to receive this letter:
We couldn't me more excited to announce she'll be joining us this year and we can't wait to hear what she has got to say, and we're not the only ones. This has also grabbed the attention of Global Citizen Festival artist No Doubt!
This is just one of the many wins we're expecting to come out of the Global Citizen Festival this year. Keep checking in for more updates and exciting news!
