ABOUT GLOBAL CITIZEN
Want to take action to end injustice and inequality in the world? Great! Chances are you're a global citizen, and you're the reason why we created the Global Citizen platform.
Here, you can connect with information, organizations, events, and campaigns - all geared towards the goal of ending extreme poverty by 2030.
Global Citizen works in partnership with and supports some of the most effective organisations out there. We are committed to bringing you the most interesting stories, effective actions and powerful campaigns so that you can play your part in the movement to end extreme poverty.
Right now, there are 1.2 billion people in the world who are deprived of basic rights and opportunities to achieve their potential. We're a community, hundreds of thousands of people strong, who just aren't willing to accept that--and we're doing something about it. This is the place where you can amplify your voice, use your passion, and take action.
In 2015 we stand at the turning point for the future of people and the planet, as world leaders will make decisions that determine our future in at two crucial summits. Global Citizen is a proud member of Action/2015 and is calling on accelerated action to achieve progress and ensure no country is left behind.
The Global Citizen platform was created by the Global Poverty Project in 2012, as a hub for innovative campaigns that work towards a world where every child can survive and thrive. A world where every child has a chance to go to school, a world where women and girls are protected from violence, and where preventable diseases aren't holding people back. And more. These are things worth fighting for, and the progress that is happening is really exciting.
On Global Citizen, you truly can change the world.
