Global Citizen is a community of people who want to learn about and take action on the world’s biggest challenges. The website gives loads of suggestions for tweets you can make or petitions to sign covering a range of issues addressing poverty. There are sections on education, water & sanitation, health, food & hunger, girls & women, finance & innovation, environment and citizenship with informative articles and suggested actions. You can sign up for email alerts and also to earn points which you can use to enter competitions for tickets to various shows (mainly in the US).
At the end of 2015 global citizens had taken more than 5 million actions towards the end of extreme poverty and the fulfillment of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development by 2030. These actions have resulted in 120 commitments and announcements, including financial commitments valued at $US 19 billion. These commitments either have or are set to directly affect the lives of 476 million people.
