Why Global Citizens Should Care 
Tackling COVID-19 requires the whole world to unite behind the urgent and critical need to develop and distribute tests, treatments, and vaccines against COVID-19, and ensure these tools are made available to everyone, everywhere. We must also work to lessen the impacts of COVID-19 on the world’s most vulnerable and the root causes of extreme poverty, such as hunger, gender inequality, and more. Join the movement by taking action here to support the Global Goal: Unite for Our Future campaign. 

Shakira, Miley Cyrus, Femi Kuti, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Coldplay, and many other leading names in music and entertainment around the world voiced their support of the Global Goal: Unite for Our Future campaign on Thursday.

Launched by Global Citizen and the European Commission, the campaign aims to ensure universal access to COVID-19 tests, treatments, and vaccines, while also supporting vulnerable communities most heavily impacted by the pandemic.

Global Goal: Unite for Our Future will drive a collective effort by Global Citizens, alongside some of the world’s biggest artists, to call on world leaders to make commitments toward ensuring COVID-19 tools and treatments are available for all. It will culminate with an international pledging summit on June 27.
