The ‘Global Goal: Unite For Our Future' campaign launched by the Commission and the international advocacy organisation Global Citizen on 28 May will culminate in a global pledging summit and concert on Saturday 27 June.

On this occasion, the EU has teamed up with some of your favourite artists — such as [@Shakira] & [@Coldplay] — for the #GlobalGoalUnite Concert to fight for equal access to life-saving COVID-19 resources for everyone, everywhere. Learn more and take action: http://glblctzn.me/GlobalGoalUnite

As the President of the European Commission said, Ursula von der Leyen said:  “Artists have the power to inspire change. They use their talents to serve great causes. On 27 June, at the ‘Global Goal: Unite for our Future' Summit and Concert, artists, scientists and world leaders will speak with one voice, in a true and rare moment of global unity. They will commit to helping the world end coronavirus, while leaving no one behind. The European Union is fully committed to ensuring fair access to an affordable vaccine, as soon as possible, for everyone that needs it. United, I know we can make the world a safer place.”
