Global Citizen live!
What is the Global Citizen event?
It is organized by the United Nations, Global Citzen has three main issues to tackle:
Stop the hunger crisis
End the pandemic
Protect the planet
It aims to end extreme poverty in the world by 2030. Ahead of the G20 summit and the Glasgow climate conference, the Global Citizen campaign is also wanting big economies to share 1 billion doses of the covid-19 vaccine with the developing world. Some 4% of Africans have had one jab, while the United States alone has 55% of people fully vaccinated with two jabs.
Some of the stand-out stars include huge K-pop band BTS performing in Seoul, as well as Andrea Bocelli in Tuscany. Duran Duran are playing in London, while fellow Brits Elton John and Ed Sheeran are in Paris.
Coldplay, The Weeknd, Elton John and BTS are among the performers donating their time for the Global Citizen event which looks to highlight global poverty, climate change and the covid-19 vaccine.
The Global Citizen 2021 music event is being hosted across six continents with dozens of acts.
