Welcome to Global Citizen, a social action platform for a global generation that wants to solve the world’s biggest challenges. On this platform you can learn about issues, take action on what matters most, and join a community committed to social change. We believe we can end extreme poverty by 2030 because of the collective actions of Global Citizens across the world.
Since 2012, millions of Global Citizens around the world have taken over ten million actions to solve the world’s biggest challenges. That’s ten million emails, tweets, petition signatures and phone calls targeting world leaders to end extreme poverty by 2030. To date, the actions by our global community along with our high level advocacy efforts and with our partners, have resulted in 130 commitments and policy announcements from leaders, including financial aid valued at over $30 billion that is set to affect the lives of 1 billion people.
Global Citizen is headquartered in New York, with offices in Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom. The organization was co-founded by Hugh Evans, Simon Moss, Wei Soo in 2008. The Global Citizen platform was co-founded with Ryan Gall and Riot House in 2012.
Through a mix of content and events, grassroots organizing, and extensive reach through digital channels, Global Citizen is building the world’s largest movement for social action.
