“COP27, this year’s G7, the World Bank Spring Meetings, and the Paris climate finance summit all failed to deliver tangible results, or disruption of the world’s unjust system,” Global Citizen Co-Founder/ CEO Hugh Evans stated. “If we want to see breakthroughs on development and climate change, we need the US, UK, Canada, Australia, and all G7 nations to meet the urgency of the hour. Every single citizen has a vital role to play, and together, we must be laser-focused on driving results and impact in September.”

Hill recently ran through some of The Miseducation tracks at the 2023 Essence Festival in New Orleans. Megan also presented a headline-making set at Essence‘s concert series which convened between June 30 and July 2.
Last year’s Global Citizen Festival reportedly generated more than $2.4 billion in pledge commitments.
