A concert will be held featuring John Butler Trio, The Jezabels, Gotye, Art Vs Science and Eskimo Joe, as well as international touring artists Bruce Springsteen and Nine Inch Nails to name a few.
The aim of the initiative is to engage a new generation of people to take action in addressing extreme poverty at a global level. By registering at www.globalcitizen.org/tickets-au, music fans can earn and accumulate points for each online action they take, which can then be traded for concert tickets. Actions include sharing a video on Facebook, or signing a petition to world leaders.
One of the first actions Australian music fans will be asked to take will be to email the Foreign Minister Julie Bishop encouraging the Australian Government to make a strong commitment in support of the Global Partnership for Education (GPE).
The Global Poverty Project has the support of international figures such as Gerard Butler, Hugh Jackman, Deborra-Lee Furness, Katie Holmes, Karolina Kurkova, Freida Pinto, Professor Jeffrey Sachs, Russell Simmons, Olivia Wilde, will.i.am, and Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus. All help to spread the message of Global Citizen ship and the vision of a world without extreme poverty by 2030.
