Back in 2015, world leaders from 193 countries agreed with the United Nations' global goals. Global goals include combating extreme poverty, global warming and climate change by 2030. We will see whether the leaders will only remain on agreement or will they do something. For now, the Global Citizen is launching a campaign with the belief that the dream is possible. As stated in the Global Citizen, the next 18 months are crucial in order to exert decisive and acting pressure to make that dream come true over the next ten years. Global Goal: The Possible Dream is a campaign that will mobilise everyday citizens, corporations, governments, philanthropists to re-prioritise efforts to face and combat global warming and extreme poverty.
Some of the corporations are already engaged and some of the activities include festivals throughout 2020, as they say from Global Citizen, their trademark will be a mix of pop and policy. As they say again, events will be different from how they are usually done and will culminate on September 26, 2020, with a 10-hour historical media event. This historic media event will feature a simultaneous screening of the festival in Central Park, New York and in Lagos, Nigeria. In addition satellite events in to-be-announced cities in Latin America, Europe, and Asia. According to the announcement, in this biggest advocacy event in history will take part Alicia Keys, Billie Eilish, Coldplay, Cyndi Lauper, D'banj, Eddie Vedder, Exo, HER, Janelle Monáe, Lizzo, Metallica, Miley Cyrus, Muse, Ozzy Osbourne, Pharrell Williams, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Shawn Mendes, Tiwa Savage, Usher, and more.
Only if the aforementioned leaders would take some action with the same goal and, above all, the same enthusiasm!
