Global Citizen is a community of people like you

People who want to learn about and take action on the world’s biggest challenges. Extreme poverty ends with you.

Citizenship

Together with MSNBC we can end extreme poverty

The challenges facing the world are too big for any one person to solve. Global warming, gender inequality, educational deficits—these are all issues that people need to work together on. 

Global Citizen thrives on this idea of togetherness: when everyone’s voices converge, the world listens and acts. 

Together we can end extreme poverty. Together we can reverse climate change. Together we can empower girls & women. 

But before anything can be done, goals have to be made and shared. Global citizens have to act together.

This is where MSNBC comes in: the 2015 Global Citizen Festival’s media sponsor is giving you a chance to earn 10 points toward festival tickets by uploading a photo or video of yourself describing an issue you want people to come together on.

It’s simple:

  • Finish the sentence “As a #GlobalCitizen I will…” on a piece of paper talking about the actions you take as a Global Citizen. Ex: “As a #GlobalCitizen I will continue to support clean water initiatives” or “As a #GlobalCitizen I will recycle to combat global climate change.”
  • Take a picture or video of yourself holding the sign.
  • Upload the photo or video to MSNBC’s content hub.
  • Win 10 points towards getting a chance to win a pair of free tickets to 2015 Global Citizen Festival!
  • Share your goal on social media and inspire others!

Some prominent global citizens have already shared their hopes of collective action:
