The festival, which is an annual event organized by Global Citizen, is dedicated to promoting advocacy. Anyone can win tickets to the event by downloading the Global Citizen app, which allows one to earn points in exchange for acts of advocacy. Whether it’s sending a tweet that spreads awareness about one of the organization’s causes -- which range from ending global poverty to education equality -- or making a phone call to people in positions of power asking for a change, each of the actions is about using one’s voice to make a change rather than their wallet.
The Global Citizen Festival will be held on the Great Lawn in New York City's Central Park on Sept. 29.
