While their successful tentpole festival events attract tens of
thousands of people, these large scale events are limited in number, and
do not offer the opportunity to engage members of the global movement.
Global Citizen was looking for a way to grow and engage their movement around the world and to enable their network to extend the model beyond their existing festival properties.
Driven by AI, Global Citizen Local transforms Global Citizen from large scale festivals to anyone, anywhere in the world creating their own events at any scale. This will revolutionise the movement to end extreme poverty.
