We don’t know about you, but we think that today, right this second, is an excellent time to stand up for global equality and the end of the climate crisis. Do you know who else thinks so?
Lenny Kravitz, Billie Eilish, H.E.R., Jon Batiste, Ayra Starr, and Joé Dwèt Filé — because they’ll be hitting the stage at our newly-announced event: Power Our Planet: Live in Paris. Also included in this epic lineup are special guests FINNEAS and Mosimann. You’ll want to be there, trust us.
Where is there? You might ask. We’ve got you covered.
This June 22 we’re inviting you to join us on the Champ de Mars in Paris to take action, raise your voice, and call on world, business, and philanthropic leaders to step up against global inequality and climate change.
Under the high patronage of Emmanuel Macron, President of the French Republic, Power Our Planet: Live in Paris will rally global leaders attending the New Global Financial Pact Summit, chaired by President Macron, to drive commitments from world leaders and the private sector to confront the climate crisis head on.
Also joining Power Our Planet: Live in Paris are John Boyega, Connie Britton, Sabrina Dhowre Elba, Cyril Dion, Danai Gurira, Diane Kruger, Aïssa Maïga, Norman Reedus, Michelle Yeoh, Rémy Buisine, Common, Padma Lakshmi, and Berla Mundi.
The event will provide a platform for calls to action from some of the world’s leading youth climate activists, including Xiye Bastida, Camille Etienne, Jerome Foster II, Elizabeth Wathuti, Wawa Guteru, Brianna Fruean, Helena Gualinga, and Mitzi Jonelle Tan, among others.

We’re honored to have such an incredible lineup of artists, who’ve all, in their own right, used their voices to call for action and change when the world most needed it. They’re not only performers who will no doubt light up the Paris stage, but they also champion a just and equitable world, and are now using their talents to support the call to Power Our Planet.
“The next generation are inheriting a planet that’s being devastated by climate change,” said Lenny Kravitz. “We have the power to change things with our voices and our actions. Join me on June 22, from wherever you are, and act today to save tomorrow.”

The event will be a live moment to spearhead our year-long Power Our Planet campaign, working to give vulnerable countries a better financial foundation and access to financing solutions to invest in the transition to clean energy and withstanding natural disasters.
Through the Power Our Planet campaign, co-chaired by Prime Minister Mia Mottley of Barbados, we as Global Citizens, are together calling on global leaders to make ambitious commitments to keep the financing promises that have already been made, unlock critical funding, invest in the green transition to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees, and increase support for the poorest countries to address health inequity, education, and the fight against poverty.
Power Our Planet: Live in Paris will pave the way for urgent funding to be delivered throughout the year, including at the G20 summit in New Delhi, India in September; the Global Citizen Festival held during the United Nations General Assembly in New York City, US, in September; the International Monetary Fund and World Bank meetings in October; and culminating at COP28 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, in November.
