All You Need To Know About The Global Citizen Festival.
The 2022 Global Citizen Festival campaign is supported by governments and world leaders across the world. Since its inception in 2012, the Global Citizen Festival has become the world’s longest-running global campaign, calling for an end to extreme poverty, gender inequality, and environmental degradation.
