Showing the power of ordinary people working together to solve climate change and end extreme poverty by 2030, Global Citizen and Earth Day organizers are creating a special day of music and inspiration on the grounds of the Washington Monument in DC this weekend.
With performances from No Doubt, Usher, Fall Out Boy, Mary J. Blige, Train, My Morning Jacket and speakers including the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell; Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz; will.i.am, Soledad O’Brien, Chris Martin, Freida Pinto, and more, it’s set to be an extraordinary day to bring attention to the world’s big issues. It’s also FREE!
This incredible line up of artists and speakers will dedicate their time to educate and inspire fans to take immediate action to end extreme poverty and solve climate change on the 45th anniversary of Earth Day. Timed to coincide with the spring meetings of the World Bank Group, Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day will bring together these influencers to mobilize citizens to “protect our planet and its people”.
