Global Citizen Festival

​I’m thrilled to share that, once again, Rotary will be a part of the Global Citizen Festival 2022 on 24 September in Central Park, NYC, USA.

End Polio Now

I’m thrilled to share that, once again, Rotary will be a part of the Global Citizen Festival 2022 on 24 September in Central Park, NYC, USA.  We’ll be sharing the stage with some of the world’s most recognized leaders and activists in business, health, community, and government, as well as a full, international line-up of the top names in entertainment. Be sure to tune in to hear Rotary share why it’s critical that we take action to end polio now.

This is an incredible opportunity for Rotary to showcase to generations of changemakers exactly how we help create opportunities for girls and women, defend the planet, tackle disease, advance equality, and end extreme poverty.

The festival will take place in two iconic locations — NYC’s Central Park and Accra’s Black Star Square and will be broadcast and live streamed locally and globally.
