“A peaceful world is a world without war, inequalities and bitter disputes.”
There’s an event this Saturday, September 26th taking place on the Great Lawn in New York City’s Central Park. It’s The Global Citizen Festival created by the Global Poverty Project in 2012. It’s an innovative campaign that works toward a world where every child can survive and thrive. A world where every child has a chance to go to school, a world where women and girls are protected from violence, and where preventable diseases aren’t holding people back.
Global Citizen is a community of people like you. People who want to learn about and take action on the world’s biggest challenges—and use their power to get other people involved too. Global Citizen helps fight extreme poverty and inequality around the world, and support approaches that will make life more sustainable for people and the planet.
The Global Citizen Festival is a free-ticketed event and is timed to coincide with the launch of the United Nations’ new Global Goals designed to fight inequality, protect our planet and end extreme poverty by 2030. The festival will channel the power of hundreds of thousands of global citizens lending their voices to achieve policy and financial commitments that will shape the success of these Goals.
If you live in or near New York City, it’s a great way to spend a day with family and friends, and to help make a difference in someone’s life through Global Citizen.
