How does GCL contribute to GC’s mission to defend the planet and defeat poverty? 

Global Citizen Live is part of Global Citizen’s overarching Recovery Plan for the World, a year-long campaign with events to help kickstart a global recovery from COVID-19 and its impacts. 

Ahead of October’s G20 Summit, and COP26 in November, the Global Citizen Live campaign will call on world leaders, major corporations and foundations to defend the planet and defeat poverty in several key ways. These include: 

  • Helping end the pandemic by donating at least 1 billion doses to those most in need by September. 
  • Reverting the hunger crisis facing the 41 million people on the brink of starvation by contributing at least $6 billion to famine relief efforts. 
  • Resuming education by getting 4.5 million kids most in need back to learning by contributing $400 million towards education. 
  • Combating climate change by getting the world’s largest companies to join the Race to Zero this year. Global Citizen will call on private sector leaders to commit to developing verified science-based targets to reach net zero emissions by 2030, in line with the Paris Agreement.
  • Driving an equitable recovery for all through mobilizing $250 million to support COVID-19 response efforts, focused on people-centered justice, gender equality, racial equity, LGBTIQ+ rights, and disabled persons. 

What happened to the funds from last year’s broadcasts, One World: Together At Home and Global Goal: Unite for Our Future, and from VAX LIVE this year?

As of April 2021, 100% of the $127.9 million in funding raised during One World: Together At Home has been disbursed in full, helping to provide essential PPE, emergency aid, and more, to over 140 regional and local organizations, and the World Health Organization's COVID-19 Solidary Response Fund.

Within 10 months of the Global Goal: Unite for Our Future broadcast, $1.1 billion (more than 70% of the $1.5 billion mobilized in new grants) has been disbursed to help protect the world's vulnerable from COVID-19. This funding is directly supporting the work of the ACT-Accelerator, COVAX, and numerous other key organizations in their work to provide and distribute testing, treatments, and vaccines into 2021.  

In May 2021, Global Citizen’s VAX LIVE: The Concert to Reunite the World helped mobilize $302 million in funding and over 26 million COVID-19 vaccine doses to provide equitable vaccine access to the world’s most marginalized communities and health care workers globally. In cooperation with COVAX, these pledges are enabling the mechanism to deliver vital vaccine doses and funding to countries most in need.
