Global Citizen Live is part of the once-in-a-generation day of unity across seven continents, to be broadcast over 24 hours around the world on Apple Music, Apple TV App, YouTube, and Twitter. Global Citizen Live will also air on ABC, ABC News Live, iHeartRadio, Hulu, The Roku Channel, FX and TIME in the United States, BBC in the United Kingdom, Caracol and Caracol International in Colombia, Channel 9 in Australia, MagentaTV and MagentaMusik 360 in Germany, Mediacorp in Singapore, Multichoice in Africa, Multishow & Bis in Brazil, S3 on SABC in South Africa, AIM Group in Nigeria, RTVE in Spain, Sky & TV8 in Italy, TF1/TMC in France and TV Azteca in México, VRT/Eén in Belgium, and Zee TV in India.

The once-in-a-generation day of global unity will call for:

  • The G7 and EU to share at least one billion COVID-19 vaccine doses immediately with those most in need, support the proposal to waive IP around the production of COVID-19 vaccines and other medical tools — backed by over 100 countries — and for Pfizer, BioNTech and Moderna to share mRNA technology with the new WHO-backed mRNA technology transfer hub based in South Africa.

  • Wealthiest nations to deliver on their promise to give $100 billion annually to address the climate needs of developing countries. Only Germany, Norway and Sweden have been paying their fair share. We have just over 5 weeks for developed countries to fund the remaining $15 billion shortfall undermining this promise. Even with President Biden’s latest announcement to double climate financing, much more is required from G7 countries as a whole. 

  • US citizens to contact their representatives pressing for the passage of the largest climate protection bill in American history in order to set the US on track to at least half emissions by 50% by 2030. Congress plans to vote on the bill the week of September 27th.

  • Businesses to help curb emissions through joining the Race to Zero and pledging 1 billion additional trees by 2022 in support of the 1t.org ambition to conserve, restore and grow one trillion trees this decade.

  • The G7 and the world's billionaires to end the hunger crisis by contributing at least $6 billion for the urgent provision of millions of meals for the 41 Million People on the brink of starvation.
