In May, influential decision makers and popular culture figures from around the world will gather in New York for the Global Citizen NOW summit. Among them are celebrities like Michelle Yeoh, Hugh Jackman, Danai Gurira, and Dakota Johnson, as well as political, business, and philanthropic leaders such as Botswana President Mokgweetsi Masisi and Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg.

The summit aims to create a global agenda for urgent action on issues related to extreme poverty, including food insecurity and climate change. Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans emphasized the importance of addressing these challenges and bringing together influential decision makers to find solutions.

The event will feature actors like Hugh Jackman and Danai Gurira, as well as leaders from companies like Cisco, Citi, Delta, and PayPal. The summit will also prioritize defeating preventable diseases like malaria, polio, and HPV while introducing new initiatives to protect the Amazon Rainforest and increase investments in Africa through the World Bank.

Global Citizen NOW hopes to inspire the next generation of advocates through its Global Citizen Prize awards. These awards highlight five young individuals who are making a significant impact on the world. The recent conference in Australia was particularly successful among Gen Z and millennial leaders.
