Global Questions: What are the Global Goals?

As the world counts down the days until the Global Goals are officially signed by the United Nations on September 25, we wanted to find out how much (if anything) everyday people already know about the Goals. 

I hit the streets of New York City and asked total strangers one simple question: "What are the Global Goals?" Spoiler alert: a lot of folks out there really surprised me with their knowledge about the Goals, as well as their overall passion for making the world a better place.

Thanks to everyone who participated! We had a lot of fun making this video! (Shout out to my colleague Hans for the great editing!) Subscribe to Global Citizen on YouTube for more great videos about the Global Goals, coming soon!

And do your part to make the Global Goals famous, by tweeting about them in TAKE ACTION NOW.
