Global Citizen Festival

Big international entertainment names are gathering this September 28 to support the latest festival in the line-up of those around the world aimed at reducing poverty, the Global Citizen Festival.

The renowned Global Poverty Project, founded in Australia, is teaming-up with the Cotton On Foundation and has roped in Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon and John Mayer all in support of what they’re trying to achieve to host a concert in New York City on 28 September 2013.

At the same time in Melbourne, the Palais Theatre will fire-up to play host to Australia’s own Global Citizen Festival on 29 September, which will feature performances by Evermore and New Empire.

The Cotton On Foundation have produced some super nice looking Global Citizen T-Shirts to go along with it all, that they’re spruiking with all the proceeds from sales going back to the Cotton On Foundation to support their goal of educating 20,000 Ugandan children by 2020. A big call.

The international reach of this project knows no bounds, shown by the fact that the likes of Hugh Jackman, Olivia Wilde, Karolina Kurkova, Katie Holmes, Lara Bingle, Didier Cohen and Erin Heatherton have taken up the reins in Australia, bringing the project to the forefront of all entertainment and celebrity news.

Essentially, the concept of the Global Citizen Festival and campaign is similar to Live Aid and the Make Poverty History concert (also championed by GPP’s Hugh Evans). By becoming a Global Citizen you a joining the efforts to work towards ending global poverty by 2030.

Tickets for the Global Citizen Festival (both here in Melbourne and in New York) can be earned by taking action online –
