They have renamed it the biggest concert in the world: 24 hours of uninterrupted rock, pop, rap, soul music from the stages of all five continents. A mega festival to call for an end to extreme poverty by 2030 and raise funds for the neediest countries. The Global Citizen Live this weekend sees hundreds of music greats alternate in front of over 100,000 spectators in the presence and at least a billion viewers connected to the four corners of the planet. Numbers to make even the legendary 'global juke box' of Live Aid pale in 1985. Artists of the caliber of Elton John, Stevie performing in New York, London, Paris, Los Angeles, Rio de Janeiro, Sidney, Lagos, Seoul and Mumbai Wonder, Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, Jennifer Lopez, Demi Lovato, Duran Duran.Space also for the Maneskin in connection from the French capital and for Andrea Bocelli from Tuscany. The appeal of the organizers is addressed to all leaders (in particular those of the G7 powers), to philanthropists from all over the world and to the private sector of large companies and multinationals, to make immediate decisions and invest heavily in the future and on a sustainable development of the planet. "To the richest countries - explained Hugh Evans, CEO of the Global Citizen association founded in 2008 - we ask that the promise to allocate 100 billion dollars a year to help developing countries to face the crisis of the climate and the environmental challenge, and the distribution of one billion doses of the Covid vaccine to all poor countries.But above all we ask that 60 billion dollars be allocated for food security and to ensure meals for 41 million people in the world who suffer from hunger and live on the verge of starvation. "A special appeal is then addressed to public opinion. US to press on the administration and on Congress for the passing of the largest environmental law in American history, to achieve the goal of reducing polluting emissions by at least 50% by 2030. A measure that is about to be passed on Capitol Hill . A powerful message, therefore, entrusted to music, and amplified not only by the many artists who have joined the initiative, but also by various personalities from the world of culture and politics who wanted to give their contribution to raise awareness of theworld public opinion. Like the Sussex dukes Harry of England and Meghan Markle, present on the stage in New York's Central Park. Or the prime minister Mario Draghi who entrusted his message against world hunger to a clip in which he appears together with other world leaders. While the president of the EU commission Ursula von der Leyen from the stage in Paris announced 140 million euros for food security: "Our message is clear: we want to put an end to the pandemic, global warming and hunger in the world. vision of Europe. We must all act together and the richest must give more ".Or the prime minister Mario Draghi who entrusted his message against world hunger to a clip in which he appears together with other world leaders.
