This isn’t a music story, specifically, but there are some high-profile musicians involved. Global Citizen is the organisation behind several high-profile livestreamed music events last year, as part of its wider mission to tackle global poverty, inequity and the climate emergency. Yesterday, it published what it’s describing as a ‘recovery plan for the world… to end Covid-19 and kickstart a global recovery’.
Backed by the World Health Organization and political leaders, it will be a year-long campaign touching on vaccine distribution; food production; education; and carbon neutrality, among other issues. There will be more big events in support of this, including a Global Citizen Live concert on 25 September. Billie Eilish, Coldplay, Femi Kuti, H.E.R., Lang Lang, Miley Cyrus, Lars Ulrich and SuperM are among the artists supporting the campaign.
