The event is part of the Global Citizen’s Recovery Plan for the World, a campaign to end COVID-19. It also will support the organization’s ongoing commitment to end poverty and save the planet.
Global Citizen’s ongoing goal is, “to protect and restore at least 1 billion trees by 2022 to curb climate change; and provide meals for the more than 40 million people on the brink of starvation.”
