What are we looking for?
We looking for people working on one of the major global issues outlined by the Global Citizen Network below:
- Girls & Women
- Currently, there’s no country in the world where girls and women have equal opportunities for boys and men.
- We believe that where you live shouldn’t decide whether you live — everyone deserves access to good healthcare.
- Most importantly every child should be able to dream big — and to do that, they need quality education.
- Finance & Innovation
- Yes It’s possible to end extreme poverty by 2030 — but only if governments, businesses, and philanthropists invest $350 billion extra
- Food & Hunger
- We must ensure that every child should know where their next meal will come from, but climate change threatens the fight to end hunger.
- Water & Sanitation
- Facts: Clean water, a place to “poo,” and waste systems are not too much to ask.
- According to the report, the world’s poorest people suffer most from the climate crisis, despite contributing the least to the problem.
- Every day around the world, countless people face daily inequalities — from the LGBTI community to children with disabilities.
