|Jul 11 2013|
The second annual Global Citizen Festival will take place on September 28, 2013 in Central Park, New York featuring Stevie Wonder, John Mayer, Alicia Keys and Kings of Leon. The event coincides with the United Nations General Assembly meetings as the Global Proverty Project continues their efforts to end extreme poverty by the year 2030. "We want to encourage people who got involved last year to continue to take their involvement to a whole new level," says Hugh Evans, CEO of Global Poverty Project, the nonprofit that organizes and oversees the festival. He notes that the event's major themes this year are education, women's equality, global health and global partnerships. "Our principle objective is to enable people to take action." For the 2012 event, 54,000 people involved in social action were entered into a lottery to win tickets to the concert. Go to GlobalFestival.com to learn more, take action and get involved.
