Global Citizen is a movement of engaged citizens who are using their collective voice to end extreme poverty by 2030.
On our platform, Global Citizens learn about the systemic causes of extreme poverty, take action on those issues, and earn rewards for their actions — as part of a global community committed to lasting change. Our Global Citizen festivals bring together political decision makers, philanthropists, artists and citizens from all over the world to act.
Since 2011, millions of Global Citizens from around the world have taken over 25 million actions targeting world leaders to end extreme poverty by 2030. To date, the actions taken by our global community, along with our high level advocacy efforts, have resulted in commitments and policy announcements from leaders, valued at over $48 billion, and have impacted more than 880 million lives worldwide.
Our actions are needed more than ever. For many of us, the pandemic has disrupted life as never before. But the consequences for those already living on the edge of poverty are more dangerous than ever. For the millions facing extreme poverty, fleeing conflict or humanitarian disasters, the effects of COVID-19 could be catastrophic.
We are stronger together. Scientists worked together to create an effective COVID-19 vaccine. Now it’s on us to make sure world leaders step up to end the pandemic and tackle the biggest challenges of our time.
