Global Citizen Live is intended to promote unity and action on several global concerns, including addressing the climate needs of developing countries, pressing for a U.S. climate change protection bill to get the country to at half emissions by 50% by 2020, pushing the world's billionaires to end the global hunger crisis, and calling on the G7 and EU to share one billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines with those most in need, as well as waiving IP on the production of COVID-19 vaccines and other medical tools.
