Tickets are free for the event, but they must be earned through “rewards” gathered by “taking action” to mitigate poverty.

The primary aim of Global Citizen is to serve as platform to raise awareness about various issues, especially those affecting the poor, and to find opportunities to support campaigns and organisations that help towards sustainable change.

The festival coincides with the U.N.’s annual gathering of world leaders at its headquarters in the city. Know more about the initiative HERE.
