Your actions just made a MASSIVE difference.
We've just finished the Global Citizen Festival Hamburg, where more than 11,000 Global Citizens were joined by world and business leaders, non-profit organizations, and socially conscious artists united to rally historic momentum for the world’s poorest at this year’s G20 summit.
Together, you took 750,000 actions ahead of the G20 calling on leaders to do more. They just responded with 30 commitments and announcements worth $706 MILLION, and which will reach 113 million people by 2030.
Read and share the full list of wins here.
As people gathered to express their collective frustration in protests across the city, Global Citizen Festival Hamburg was held at a critical time of increasing isolationism and lackluster support for the worldwide agreement made 2 years ago to end extreme poverty by 2030.
Global Citizen Festival Hamburg addressed some of the greatest global issues of our time, including the education deficit, global health security, climate change gender equality and the refugee crisis.
But it was reiterated throughout the night by leaders from the political, private and social impact spheres how much more needs to be done.
You can watch the whole show on YouTube for the next 48 hours, and see all the announcement, performances and calls to action for yourself.
That's why we're at the G20 all this weekend, demanding that leaders follow through and deliver more, and why we'll share a final summary of what world leaders did and didn't do next week.
Thanks for doing what you do,
Simon and the Global Citizen Team
