How much time does it take to create change or take action for something you’re passionate about? You might think it takes years and years — and sometimes, it does — but you can actually raise your voice and take meaningful action for the issues you care about in less time than you think. 

It’s never been more important than right now to create a positive impact on the world. With the newly-redesigned Global Citizen app, it’s also never been easier to make a difference for yourself and the world — just by taking a few minutes out of your day. 

Global Citizen has always been a champion of the small actions that, together, add up to the monumental impact we’ve seen in the journey to ending extreme poverty. Thanks to the 33.5 million actions taken by Global Citizens to date, $43.6 billion has been distributed, impacting 1.29 billion lives

So how do we make action-taking (and ultimately ending extreme poverty) part of your lifestyle, in the same way Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, WhatsApp and other apps have become central parts of our day-to-day lives? 

Well, by empowering you to create change every day, act on issues you care about, turn activism into a habit, and inspire others to do the same along the way — through the redesigned Global Citizen app. 

Download the Global Citizen app.

Our new app offers simple and actionable tasks that you can complete in just a few minutes to help defend the planet, demand equity, and defeat poverty.

We’ve added improved daily prompts, to inspire you to take action on the issues that matter most to you. Whether it's reducing your carbon footprint, advocating for marginalized communities, or contributing to ways to fight poverty, the app provides you with the tools and resources to make a tangible impact. 

The redesigned app also makes it easy to track your progress, connect with like-minded individuals, and stay informed about the latest news and developments in social and environmental justice. 

By joining our community of passionate and committed individuals, you'll not only make a difference in the world, but you'll also inspire others to do the same — which is what we all want, right? 

If you’re not already on your way to the app store or hitting that “update” button, here are some of the new app features we’re 110% pumped about: 

  • “For You” Screen: Four tasks delivered to you each day, designed to help you make measurable global impact.
  • “Discover” Screen: This is a combined browsable feed featuring all Global Citizen’s content – allowing you to dive deeper into issues you care about and discover stories from activists around the world. You can also filter this content based on the issues, advocacy, and activities that you personally want to see. 
  • Journeys: Our journeys will guide you through a series of small tasks to take over the course of a few days or weeks, to learn more about and take meaningful action on a specific issue area — whether it’s combating period poverty, learning how to reduce your own carbon footprint (and call on world leaders to do the same), or being a champion for clean water access. 
  • Ways to celebrate action-taking: Yes! Because what is life without celebrating your wins? When you take action with us, you’ll earn points and be offered other ways to celebrate your action-taking — through our rewards, leaderboards, badges, and goal achievements, among others.

There’s a whole lot more we’re working on to make the Global Citizen app experience even more rewarding and exciting for you, so stay tuned and follow @GlblCtzn on social media (Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, Twitter, and more) to get all the latest news and updates.  

The redesigned Global Citizen app helps you make a positive impact on the planet, society, and the mission to end extreme poverty — every. single. day. And we can all get into that, can’t we? 

So download (or update) the redesigned Global Citizen app right now and get stuck into taking action. The Global Citizen app is available on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store for Android phones. 

If you want to be a real standout Global Citizen app champion, why not get your friends and family to download the app too — and kickstart their journey to defending the planet, demanding equity, and defeating poverty. 

Together, we can make great things happen — we’re counting on you!
