Global citizens believe that the world can bring about the end of extreme poverty by 2030.
It won't be quick, and it certainly won't be easy, but it can happen if we - as global citizens - create an unstoppable movement committed to changing the systems and structures that keep people trapped in extreme poverty.
Extreme poverty won't be ended by charities, businesses or governments working alone. Realising the potential of every person on the planet, this platform - Global Citizen - brings together the support of all of charities, businesses and governments.
When an organised, critical mass of individuals partner with leading organisations, get organised and equipped to take meaningful action, together we can change specific policies and practices that contribute to keeping people in extreme poverty.
Repeat this cycle across many issues, and this movement can ensure that our governments, businesses and selves act in support of the world’s poor, so that progressively, the systems, structures, policies and processes are changed, ending extreme poverty by 2030. Global citizens - you - are at the heart of our strategy to creating meaningful and systemic changes for the world's poorest people.
Together with partners this platform makes change happen through our theory of change:
We design and host campaigns on critical issues
Capitalize on influential moments and people
Channel the voices and actions of global citizens
Support global citizens and others like you to build a movement of people working to end extreme poverty
victories that affect lives bringing the world closer to zero poverty by 2030
At Global Citizen, we believe we can achieve more and better impact for the world’s poor together, so we’re building and empowering a movement of people that includes people like you.
By providing platforms like the Global Citizen website and events, more and better impact becomes possible through the catalysing effect of channelling your voices and actions. Global Citizen amplifies our unified voice as a clear public mandate, making world leaders accountable to us, encouraging them to bring about systemic policy changes for the world’s poorest people.
We will share with you how world leaders respond to your call and the difference this is making to the world’s poorest people. And if they don’t respond, we will hold the mirror up and keep on channelling the voices of global citizens until no one is living in extreme poverty any more.
