OUR IMPACT

Over the last six years, millions of Global Citizens around the world took over 11 million actions to solve the world's biggest challenges. That’s 11 million emails, tweets, petition signatures and phone calls targeting world leaders to end extreme poverty by 2030. To date, the actions by our global community have resulted in over $30 billion in commitments and policy announcements that will affect the lives of 1 billion people by 2030.

Frequently Asked Questions

Questions about actions

How does a user enter the lottery and when will they find out if they’ve won? +

To enter the lottery for festival tickets in the first action journey, users must take enough actions to earn 13 points, and then redeem them in the app for an entry into the draw. Winners will be informed via email when the draw is made.

I don’t have the Global Citizen app. Can I still take actions for the festival? +

To take actions that will earn you points for the Global Citizen Festival, you must download the app and take action there. The app is available on both Android and iOS platforms.

I have the Global Citizen app, but don’t see actions for the Festival. Why? +

The Global Citizen Festival actions are only available to people located in the United States and Canada.

How do you track the actions people take, especially actions such as calling a representative? How do you know someone has actually placed a call? +

The actions are tracked through the Global Citizen online platform and mobile app. Once a participant takes an action, for example, signing a petition, the points are registered to their Global Citizen profile. Through the mobile app, we are able to track, with the same technology, when a participant makes a call to their representative’s office.
