In the last 15 years, we have seen the most successful anti-poverty push in history. Thanks to this global effort, we now have the opportunity to end extreme poverty by 2030.
Join us to ensure that all the world’s children and young people survive and thrive.
By taking action as a Global Citizen, together we can secure commitments to affect the lives of 50 million people on vaccines, education, sanitation and more.
Global Citizen is a tool to amplify and unite a generation’s call for justice. It’s a place for you to learn and act, to bring an end to extreme poverty.
Global Citizens know that a world that deprives 1.2 billion people of their basic rights and opportunities is unjust and unacceptable. We celebrate the efforts made to cut extreme poverty by half, but recognise more still needs to be done. We know that people living in extreme poverty are working hard themselves, and that we need to learn and take action to change the rules that trap them in broken systems.
We use Global Citizen to learn more about issues, so we can take effective action for change and find opportunities to support campaigns and organisations creating sustainable change. Right now Global Citizen is in launch phase, but in coming weeks and months it will feature new issues, with the latest information and action opportunities, so you can take effective action for change.
There are more than 250,000 Global Citizens already taking action around the world – we hope that you join us.
