President von der Leyen participates in the launch of Global Citizen's new campaign for global recovery

Today (23 February) President von der Leyen will announce the European Commission’s support to international advocacy group Global Citizen‘s new campaign, ‘A Recovery Plan for the World’. This yearlong campaign is built around five priorities: 1) ending COVID-19 for all; 2) ending the hunger crisis; 3) resuming learning everywhere; 4) protecting the planet; and 5) promoting equity for all. The launch event will be live on EbS from at 17-18h CET. It will feature addresses by Dr. Tedros Adhanom, Director General of the World Health Organization, Hugh Evans, CEO, Global Citizen, Cyril Ramaphosa, President of South Africa, John Kerry, U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, Hugh Jackman, Actor, Singer, Producer and Global Citizen Ambassador, Declan Kelly, Member of the Global Citizen Board and Billie Eilish, Singer-Songwriter and activist.

Last year, the European Commission and Global Citizen joined forces in the fight against the coronavirus. The Global Goal: Unite for Our Future campaign helped raise significant funding worldwide for universal access to COVID-19 tests, treatments and vaccines, especially for low and middle-income countries.
