Global Citizen Festival Returns on September 23 to Drive Critical Efforts to End Extreme Poverty NOW: For Equity, For The Planet, For Food and For Jobs
The Global Citizen Festival is back in New York City on September 23, 2023. This free event will feature amazing performances by Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Megan Thee Stallion, Conan Gray and Stray Kids. The goal is to end extreme poverty by 2030 and tackle the biggest challenges facing the world today.
The festival will call on world leaders to take action on issues such as gender equality, climate change, and hunger. Millions of people can join the movement and earn tickets by taking action on the Global Citizen app or website. The festival will coincide with the United Nations General Assembly in New York, where leaders will gather to discuss global solutions.
Some of the specific actions that the festival will demand are: more funding for sexual and reproductive health services, quality education for children in crisis, climate finance for vulnerable countries, and food security for millions of people facing hunger. The festival will also urge businesses to commit to zero emissions and invest in sustainable development. Together, we can make a difference and end extreme poverty.
