Call to action: 24 hours of concerts worldwide for the planet and its inhabitants

Friederike Röder, Vice President of Global Citizen, lauded the 24-hour global event as a veritable success. "We kicked off the whole 24-hour show (here in Paris). It was just a great moment of reunifying the world, with people coming together." But, as Ms. Röder pointed out, the event's defining success was illustrated by the "call to action" and the US$1 billion raised in the battle against the pandemic, the "commitments against climate change and the fight against extreme poverty."
