Host Dwayne Johnson said:

“I’m proud to join Global Citizen and the European Commission to host the ‘Global Goal: Unite for Our Future’ concert. The event aims to lift up the global community that is tackling equitable access to health care, and other enormous injustices facing our world. This critical moment in history requires all of us — so let’s join together to chart a better future, for everyone.”

Said Hugh Evans, co-founder and CEO of Global Citizen:

“Global Citizens around the world are calling for systemic change, change that brings about justice for everyone, everywhere, regardless of where they were born or the color of their skin. If we are to end COVID-19 for all, we need our world leaders to commit the billions of dollars needed to equitably deliver testing, treatments, and vaccines.”

Evans added that Global Goal will “bring the centuries-old concept of music as a motivator for change and unity, together with science and data, to honor the problem solvers — including doctors, scientists, lab workers, essential workers, and human rights advocates — who are racing to not only create the cure for COVID-19, but also to ensure that it’s available for everyone who needs it.”

Said Miley Cyrus:

“This moment requires all of us to act. Because of this global effort, we will be more able to ensure that everyone, everywhere has access to COVID-19 testing and treatment, regardless of their income or where they live.”

Shakira added: 

“We need health equity and global justice, and we know that only by uniting to fight for the world we want can we build back toward a healthier future for all.”

 

 

Global Goal: Unite for Our Future aims to strengthen health care systems globally so no one is left behind in this pandemic. 

The Concert will follow Global Goal: Unite for Our Future — The Summit, a global pledging moment to be held earlier in the day.

The concert is the second project by Global Citizen, after their first concert One World: Together At Home, produced in collaboration with the World Health Organisation on April 18.

In Asia, the premiere of Global Goal will go live on 28 June, from 0100h (TH/ID Time) and 0200h (SG/MY/PH Time).
