September 16th, 2019 – New York City – Global Citizen, in partnership with Teneo, today announced they will hold a press conference in New York on September 26th 2019, to announce Global Citizen’s largest and most ambitious campaign to date — Global Goal Live: The Possible Dream.
The year-long initiative will help secure commitments toward the $350 billion in additional funding needed annually to achieve the United Nations Global Goals in the world’s poorest 59 countries, by combining smart approaches to aid with different sources of capital - from big philanthropy, the private sector, to helping drive investments from governments around the world.
In partnership with Live Nation and Diversified Production Services (DPS), the campaign will culminate on September 26, 2020, with a historic 10-hour global media event that will span five continents, which is expected to be the largest and most viewed cause event in history.
Global Goal Live will bring together governments and NGOs, leading artists and entertainers, and CEOs of the world’s largest corporations, among other partners, in a historic effort to help end extreme poverty, tackle climate change and reduce inequality. Several government officials, artists and entertainers that have signed on to the campaign will participate in the press conference.
The press conference will also name the key private sector leaders working with Global Citizen to drive the policy outcomes needed to achieve the Global Goals. The coalition of private sector leaders is being led by Teneo, bringing their unparalleled network of corporate relationships to the campaign. The firm has partnered closely with Global Citizen on a number of initiatives over the last several years.
The campaign is being launched now because the next 18 months will shape the future of humanity - it’s the last chance to course correct to end extreme poverty, tackle climate change and reduce inequality in time to reach the 2030 Global Goals deadline agreed to by all world leaders in 2015.
Global Citizen is best known for its social advocacy campaigns and global festivals - including the Global Citizen Festival - which has been held in New York City, Montreal, Mumbai, Hamburg, London, Berlin, and more recently in Johannesburg - where tens of thousands of Global Citizens come together, along with millions more through global online and television viewing, to witness the power of their actions in person. Since 2012, over 23 million actions have been taken on the Global Citizen platform, which have unlocked $40 billion in commitments that are set to affect the lives of over 2.25 billion people, improving access to health, education and nutrition in the world’s poorest countries.
