pearl jam, all joined by special guest artists for the 2015 global citizen festival live from central park. welcome to our live coverage of the 2015 global citizen festival, it's already been an historic week here in new york city and something big happening here again today. >> more than 60,000 people are gathered here on the great lawn of new york city central park all with one mission to end extreme poverty within the next 15 years. and there's also that concert you may have heard about. some of the biggest names in music take the stage throughout the day and, well, into the evening. the first performance to get under way just a short time from now. >> and good afternoon from
central park i'm willie geist alongside with my colleagues and we think we have a great second chance. >> you don't often hear beyonce and wily geist in the same senten sentence. >> who are we most excited to see? how about you janet? >> i'll be obvious and basic beyonce, the queen bee is here and she's doing it for a good cause. it's kind of powerful to have those two huge philanthropic celebrity driven organizations coming together. >> she's not a bad singer. along with the philanthropy. >> i think janet is right i think the correct answer is beyonce and i'll give a shout-out to chris martin and coldplay and common sense, aka common. >> coldplay going to start just under an hour from right now and closing the night is pearl jam.
>> yes. >> i'm extremely excited about that. it takes me back to my junior in high school when "ten" came out the catalog of hits. >> you are dating yourself. >> you were young children. just up in your cribs. we've got a great line-up of guests on our set coming up just in the next few minutes and also all night long some incredible music right behind us. >> let's see what's happening behind the scenes and for that we go to our favorite behind-the-scenes correspondent thomas roberts who has exclusive backstage access. >> reporter: great to see you and, yes, you are the front of the house, the heartbeat of what this concert is all about. i'm back here in the action hub what i like to consider the hive mind of this project and all these folks are interacting with all of you at home. all of the global citizens out there that are watching this. that can't be with us today in central park. i would encourage you to get involved and see down here, these are the hash tags you'll use global citizens and global goals. what is going to motivate you? what is going to inspire you to
be a part of what we're doing here today? let us know via your social media pages and we're going to be nfilling these seats with celebrities, katie holmes, olivia wilde, maybe beyonce, i don't know and then we've got this tricky little -- look at this. it's a twitter mirror so you can actually take a selfie in here and then tweet it. so, i'll get this fired up. i had it all ready for us to go and, of course, me and technology, i've been locked out. oh, oh. oh, no, guys. wah-wah. anyway, i'll work on this. yeah. >> the universe may be telling you something, thomas. >> reporter:i know. mirror mirror on the wall why are you locking me out? >> it's something serious. it is a beautiful mirror. >> reporter: it is. isn't it nice. we'll have more. i'll fix it. >> thomas mentioned the names coming through green mom, the stephen colbert, hugh jackman
and leonardo dicaprio and the list goes on and on but right now the man behind all this the ceo of the global poverty project, mr. hugh evans. great to see you, man. >> thank you, willie. thank you very much for having me. >> congrats. >> congrats. how do you feelle? >> i didn't get much sleep last night i was so excited. this is the biggest year for the movement. we're seeing that, you know, yesterday the united nations lawn. the new global goals for sustainability development and we want this party tonight to be historic announcement of those goals but also build a lasting movement to achieve them so i couldn't be happier. >> on the piece the u.n. millennium goals for 2000, they are a very, very big deal and they expired this year and there's a new set of goals. tell us what we're looking for from the world community? >> what we're looking for we're looking for this notion of holistic development. the millennium development goals were built at a time when it was kind of the west versus the south whereas now we're actually talking about everyone being involved in this process of economic development.
so, all 193 world leaders agreed upon the new goals yesterday which is quite a historic movement because it hasn't happened before, you know, and so more world leaders in town this weekend than at any time in the last 70 years of the united nations history and that's really what we're here to celebrate. >> it's powerful to have all of the leaders but also all these amazing do-ers who are allowed to come in here because they earned their spot. >> that's exactly right. >> that's a powerful piece of today's event. how do you think that music in that has changed in that kind of a way? >> i think if you look back through history. look at the amazing grace when that song that was -- for the abolition of the slave trade or you see the amazing songs that were sung in the anty apartheid movement in south africa, these are the songs in our generation and these are the songs that will inspire our generation to be part of this generation's challenge to end extreme poverty. music is key. it brings roin s everyone toget it's the great uniter.
>> and we've talked a couple teams over the last few days and that goal of ending extreme poverty by the end of 2030 which is only 15 years away, people say on earth are you going to do that. so how on earth are you going to do that? >> we'll make sure that the world leaders that come up on stage today and make commitments to impact the lives of tens of millions of people actually follow through on their commitments. every year this will be an accountability moment. you might remember last year the world bank made the big $15 billion commitment, you'll see something in store tonight where there's actually an accountability on how the world bank is going to lift people out of extreme poverty. it's not just about massive amounts of money being announced. it's actually about followthrough and how it's delivered to affect the lives of the world's poorest people. that's what global sit zecitize about. >> it feels like we're having a pope, not to wax overly philosophically and the pope left the city and talked about problems to solve and i wonder how you think that sort of casts a rainbow if you will over what is already a pretty sunny day.
>> i think that the pope's blessing is absolutely wonderful over new york city. and i think that the fact that he has been such a personal champion for the end of extreme poverty but also climate change, he's been passionate about that and that's what global citizen is trying to do also, embodied in the 17 global goals for 17able development are three goals, extreme poverty and climate change and poverty. >> he teed it up. he was your opening act. you don't usually have that on the bill, the pope opening for beyonce. that's why this is the most important event ever. >> thank you, alex. >> you mentioned this getting bigger than ever. we've got the first lady of the united states here and the vice president of the united states, that changes things for you, doesn't it? >> it changes everything. because it shows that the u.s. government is willing to bee at the forefront of international development. often an issue like international development might not get so much play during an election year but you can see the fact that they're putting their name behind it with michelle obama's let girls learn
campaign, but also the fact that the vice president himself is coming here to say, i'm supportive of the new global goals for sustainable development. that is historic and never happened before at least to my knowledge. >> and even the chinese premier, xi ping is in town, but the chinese are coming to the table with a cap and trade bill. it feels like there is action on the subject of climate change in particular that is happening right now that is unprecedented. >> that's right. and leonardo dicaprio will say really important words about that in the lead-up to the c.o.p. 21 summit later in december. we see that's a real challenge for global citizens not just to respond to issues like extreme poverty but how do we build a sustainable planet. >> hugh evans, thank you so much. this is a massive acheacievemen. congratulations. >> thank you, willie, thanks alex. >> we're just getting started. up next she's partnered with one of tonight's big headliners beyonce in a groundbreaking
welcome back to the global citizen festival. we are here on the great lawn of central park in new york city. last year's festival saw 18 announcements made by world leaders on a variety of key issues. when all is said and done the impact will be felt by 259 million people by the year 2020. tickets to today's festival were free but were earned by having individuals take action to end extreme poverty. in all 48,000 tickets were handed out to today's event. 48,000. joining us now the founder and ceo of mashable, pete cashmore and executive director of in92 account street y, mashable and the 92nd y are partnering with the united nations foundation and it starts tomorrow. great to have you here. >> we're really excited. it's the sixth year of the social good summit running
tomorrow and sunday. what it's really all about we all have this reach on social media now. we can all speak to our friends. can we do good using that connection, so we've been running for six years. we have all kinds of celebrities, politicians speaking about how can you change the world. we'll see adrian bernier, m. >> pete mentioned everyone from madelein albright speaking. what are you hoping to learn? >> the summit will be here in new york on the 92nd street "y" but right now in 110 countries around the world people are getting together in person to think about how we can address the 17 goals. what we can do to solve some of these problems and it's an amazing thing to think that in person in coffee shops and cafes and conference centers in 110
countries people are doing what we're doing sitting together talking about how to solve problems. i think that's an amazingly hopeful sign. the real celebrities will be those people rolling up their sleeves looking at the 17 goals and saying, i can take on goal eight. i can take on goal nine and that's exsiciting about social media. >> how do i get involved? >> we'll be live streaming tomorrow. there had been #2013now. they'll be suggesting things you can do right now to make a difference and follow th the #2030now and you can follow along and learn what you can do to make a dirgefference. >> you know something or maybe a lot of things more than a little about reaching millennials. and so much of this change is being driven by this generation. >> right. right. >> i wonder how you think, you know, if you're looking at this kind of moment we're having, how do you best engage this generation and how do you keep them engaged?
>> what is incredible, you know, we've been running this six years is that every week the u.n. comes together every year the u.n. comes together for this week to talk about how do we fix world issues and what social good summit tries to do is turn it inside out. i think it's the millennial generation is the first generation to really believe they can change the world because they can. people say they're all so full of themselves and they're all so overconfident they think they can change the world. look, they can. they all come out. everyone who is here has done something good in order to get a ticket here. how do you engage millennials, you have to go to them where they are. we have accounts on snapchat and youtube and twitter and facebook and all the social media platforms because it's not bringing them to you it's about being on the platforms they're on, on their apps in their social media and i think when people hear these messages they do want to make a difference. >> they care about substance and this is a big serious discussion and people aren't afraid of that. >> i was watching our
conversation from gawnle hana. one of the problems they have in an emergency they can't find people. there aren't street addresses in some parts so this app can help people find themselves in moments of emergency. what was so interesting as you watch that conversation it's the same conversation they're having in the philippines, right? the thing people get wrong about social media is they think it's just tweeting and it's so shallow. the truth of it is a new generation is getting deep. they are finding structural ways they can view technology to do the thing we're all here to do which is build communities around solving world problems that's what today's fessty spral festival and the 92nd street "y" is about. >> i love that we are giving millennial props and i think about the power of conversations the intemassey that comes with sharing space and why the 92nd street "y" brings people together. >> absolutely. this is an incredible day but also an incredible week here. we had the pope here for the last couple of days. he's on to philadelphia today.
and really setting the tone for what we're trying to do here this afternoon and tonight. >> right. yeah, it's all about this idea that you are empowered now. you have the tools. you can't just sit at home. it's very easy, you know, when i was growing up you'd look at issues like, oh, well, if i recycle and everyone else doesn't recycle how does that possibly make a difference. you can make all the excuses and now you can see everyone is out here trying to make a difference and you can follow the hash tag and see everyone online making a difference and really with the tools you are empowered and you can start a movement and everyone can do it. that's the real lesson of the digital age and the global citizenfest. >> can we ask you a question we'll ask everybody on this set which is who are you most excited to see. henry, i want to start with you first. which musical act? >> i think is patriotic bias but i'm going to say coldplay. >> i was wondering. not beyonce. >> heshe's not royalty? >> i've got to go beyonce.
i was lucky enough to see her live a couple years ago and she's fantastic. >> and willie will be on stage with beyonce. >> doing "single laled ladies" leotard. it will be an amazing moment. thanks for what you are doing. >> thank you both so much. actress, producer and activist salma hayek is the co-founder to raise awareness for women and girls around the world. i had the incredible honor of sitting down with the oscar nominated actress to talk about the campaign and i asked her what it is means to join forces with the queen bee and the impact they hope to have together. thanks so much for joining me. i'm so happy to be here with you. >> time for change started and co-founded in 2013 -- [ inaudible ] and its goal was to center women and girls globally in three different particular areas. we have justice. health and education. how did you get involved with
time for change? >> well, from the very beginning, you know, gucci belongs to a company, a bigger company that is called caring. and i was in the board of caring. we're doing a lot of things already for women. and then they decided to take it even a step further. and go into a more global idea. >> this year it seems that there's, you know, you are co-hosting the global citizens festival. and beyonce is a headliner at that concert. how do you see your presence in this particular space to kind of advance and raise awareness of these issues? >> for us it's an amazing scenario, to not only participate in our hopes for what we want for the future of global citizen and chime for change, but also to probably
show a little bit of the work that we have done. i am so lucky that beyonce, it's our queen, and she's such an extraordinary woman and such an example in many ways. what i can tell you is that we all really do it from the heart. and that what i love about her, and this is what i believe and it's part of my principles in doing this kind of work, is that you'll never hear about all of the work that we do. because a lot of the work, it's behind the scenes. >> and in two years chime for change has raised $7.3 million and has funded 400 projects in 86 countries. how does that impact, what does that mean for you? >> well, sometimes we raise the money separately for specific
projects but also, you know, to me what is great is that i always knew that the hope of the world is in people reconnecting with their humanity. it's on the people's heart. not on one company. not on one organization. but what it means to me is that, yes, the people out there want to be part of the change. and we are all working together. and i'm proud of the work, but there's so much more. there is so much to do. >> chime for change is partnering this year with global citizens. global citizen has a goal to end extreme poverty in 15 years. how do you see the work that chime for change does in terms of women and girls globally to help kind of -- where does this partnership lead? >> i think where we are on the same page, and it's very organic that we come together, is that they also use social media and
the empowerment of everybody. not just looking for money with a big organizations, but to really our dream is to create a social consciousness of people, of a world, that want a better world and that want to work together towards the same goals. and they understand very well that the poor conditions of women, and i talk about in terms of education, in terms of justice and also health, contribute to poverty. it's not that they happen because there is post-onverty o but that they contribute to the problem of poverty around the world. so, it's a -- we are very proud to -- to partner with global citizen and to work together. >> in 2005 you testified before the u.s. senate committee in support of the violence against women act, 2006 you protested
legislation that would have made felons out of undocumented immigrants, 2009 you visited seeiera leone and this year you visited lebanon with unicef. what was the genesis for you, you know, you're an artist, you're a producer, what was the genesis for you to get so involved? what were the roots of your passion as an activist? >> i don't like it. i don't like the way things are. and i have a motto that i say, to not complain about anything that you did not do something to change. so, i think if we're not happy with the way things work, we can't just sit and complain, wait for someone else to do it. >> i think that's why i love the partnership between chime for change and global citizen, because they both use the tools that are everyday tools. >> how about take five minutes
and change someone's life? >> five minutes to change someone's life a message from salma hayek-pinault. >> i could listen to salma hayek talk about anything but in particular what she is saying in that interview is very great. >> and teaming with beyonce on that there's a lot of power in that movement. >> that's serious chiming for change. still ahead, we will get another exclusive look backstage as we gear up for a spectacularly jamming night of live music. pearl jam, beyonce, coldplay and ed sheeran. you are watching live coverage of the 2015 global citizen festival right here on msnbc.
extreme poverty by the year 2030. >> big crowd filing in here. you don't have to look any further than the 60,000 people here in central park today to see what the world has shown a remarkable commitment to help the world's impovermpoverished. we're now 30 minutes away from coldplay. >> i can feel the excitement. it's not just my shirt that is sparkl sparkling, the air is filled with a glittery feeling if that makes any sense. >> right as you said that there was a gust of wind that blew a different scent up to the stage. i thought that's what you were referring to. >> it's a calming scent. >> a lot of music is coming up and a lot of celebrities will be on stage. >> pete cashmore talking about just how engaged this millennial generation is. >> the idea that all of these people are connected around social issues and coming together online beyond the selfie is always so powerful to
build the greatness forward. >> and sticking up for the millennials. >> we need you all. we need you two. >> i'm an old man. >> i'm younger than the millennial generation. what do you call that generation "z"? >> as exciting as it is on the main stage with you guys there is a lot happening backstage that we can't yet see, so let's go to our favorite person backstage, the great thomas roberts. thomas, what can you tell us, my friend? >> reporter: first of all, i have the digit to this so i know how to twitter mirror. and i have soledad o'brien with me. >> nice to see you. >> we'll be co-hosting the action hub throughout the evening and we'll be back here with your favorite celebrities and we're also going to be interacting with everybody. we were going over before you came to us about what we are supposed to do back here. >> right. >> let's tell everybody. because this is about getting people at home involved. >> absolutely. it's about action. it's about taking action. it's about being engaged with what's happening and focusing on the global goals, making sure that everybody knows what they are and understands what they're
about and pointing to the year 2030 where we actually believe we could eradicate global poverty. >> these are achievable goals, while they are serious, they are achievable, something we can do over the next 15 years. soledad and i have the twitter mirror that did -- you're going to be my lucky charm because, miss o'brien, because i failed the last time because it locked me out, turn around. let's get alex, willie, and janet in the shot. the folks at home we can punch up the shot. ready? >> we're in this? this is a lot of pressure. >> wait. what are we doing? >> what's happening? >> ready. there we go. >> that's awesome. >> you hit love it. we're going to tweet it. we're going to tag you. and we're all going to be in this. >> it's all happening. >> thank you for allowing me to take our photo with the writer mirror because it actually worked for me. you are my lucky charm. >> i try. i trife. >> these are the organic moments we'll have all night long back in the action huck. we hope to hear from you.
tweet us. easy enough. and these are the hash tags you'll want to use tonight. #globalcitizen and #globalgoals. you'll find the different actions you can take and how to get involved, whether it's gender equality or malaria and polio vaccinations and poverty issues. keeping your local leaders and your global leaders accountable. there's strength in unity. we'll send it back to you guys and we'll see you soon. >> thomas, soledad, thank you so much. >> i love the twitter mirror. i'm not entirely sure what happened, but it was magical. it was exciting. >> speaking of magic. >> exciting magic here joining us here television host bill nye also known on the streets colloquially the world over the science guy. >> yes. yes, ma'am. greetings. >> can we do a look behind the curtain. bill, as you were making your way up to the stage the crowd rose to its feet. >> look at that. that's all for bill. >> science! >> science.
>> it's great. >> i thought bono was walking up to the stage. it's bill nye. >> another legend. >> the most famous scientist in the world. it feels like we were discussing this earlier in the show, it feels like a real moment to tackle the subject of climate change. >> yes. >> and sort of where we are as a planet on this subject. >> that's right. >> both with the actions that the chinese are taking and the pope's words on it. >> the pope for crying out loud. >> and then today. talk to us about kind of where these goals are and how close we are to getting there. >> the main goal here is to end extreme poverty by 2030. and what i'm going to be a little bit involved in is this peace for food act which is -- we're revising to make it more efficient. that aside. climate change is a big deal and it affects global food supplies in a huge way. and so this as you just pointed out could be the turning point. >> yeah. >> this could be it! and i will say to conservative voters and those who of you -- how many people are running for president? 30, 45 people?
>> 796,000. >> 796 people are running for president. you could be like the guy in "quit smoking" who is the most rabid anti-smoking you'll ever meet is the guy that recently quit, right? >> right. >> you could come around and say climate change is a big deal, i see it 96% of the world's scientists are on board with this and this affects global food supplies and affects security writ large and this could be an opportunity to, dare i say it, change the world. >> change the world. >> the world. >> speaking of changing the world, i think that there is something so powerful about the work that you've always done, i grew up on bill nye the science guy. >> i love that, man. >> you inspired a whole generation about the complex issues and you'll be very accessible. what is about it about the accessibility that allows people to come here and cheer for you? >> why are you so magical.
>> why are you so great? >> i still work very, very hard to make concepts accessible to everybody. because my claim is that science is the best idea humans have ever had. everything you see here, everything, came out of somebody's head, even the trees were put here by a designer. and so the designer was human. and so this is the process of science, that enables us to have this remarkable technology and to feed 7.3 billion people. when my grandfather was alive, there were 1.5 billion people in the world. >> right. >> when i was here in 1964, at the world's fair, so nice they named it twice, there were 3 billion people. now there are over 7.2, going on 7.3 billion people and what enables us to feed that many people is technology, is our ability to farm in large scales. say what you will about industrial farming, that's not what we're talking about, we're
talking about writ large, the ability to provide fresh water to people is a huge key to the future and if you want to talk technically, which we love to do -- >> yeah, definitely. >> -- the couple problems that need to be solved is -- are the better battery. invent the better electric battery to get rich beyond rich. electrical transmission can be big improved. big power lines could be improved. desaliniating seawater. >> and the people in california i'm sure would in particular like that. >> and in the developing world, if we had ways to move enormous quantities of water cheaply from shorelines to agricultural and urban areas would change the world. and the fourth one, if we could have a fee and dividend system on darken. we cannot ever call it -- we cannot say that word. >> he said "tax." >> fee and dividends. that's why he gets a rock star welcome. but, you know, bill, to the -- you know, you put on the old man voice, right?
>> yes. well -- >> which is funny and you do a very good joj of it is, my friend. >> thank you. >> a huge part of your appeal is among the millennial generation. >> yes. >> people who are here, the kids -- >> the kids with their electric phones. >> and we talk about this being the moment. >> that may change the world. >> it will. >> you think these are the guys to do it? >> absolutely. these people this age, people coming of age right now, are the people that are going to come up with the new patents and just innovations not only technically, technologically, but also legislatively or in policy. so, for example, we found these inefficiencies in our food for peace program that we're going to try to smooth out. so it's new ideas. and not extraordinarily totally different like we've never done them before ideas, just new ideas. going to be good. >> before we let you go, i've got to ask you this because it definitely does feel like a moment and for all the tension that climate changes gets from celebrities, from politicians,
from people like you, when you ask people in a poll it still ranks near the bottom of things that are most important. why is that? >> because i'm a failure! >> no, you're not. >> because i have not made it clear to everybody. >> how do you get traction out of this moment? >> it is what it is. the fossil fuel industry "just to go pointing fingers, has worked very hard to introduce this idea that scientific uncertainty is the same as -- plus or minus such and such percent is the same as it's all completely wrong, plus or minus 100%. but people i think can very quickly overcome that once you see the real deal. it's not -- look, it's 97% of the world's scientists. it's not 3%, get over it. >> it's not people denying it, it's people saying this is the most important thing to me. >> i'm working on it. and thank you for having me on the show. but even now we have drought in california. i was in las vegas, nev, yesterday, and it was 39 -- what's that? 107 fahrenheit --
>> dry heat. >> dry heat. >> you can barely feel it. >> but the drought in the west if it persists. this is the developed world. we have hoover dam, we have ross dam, we can move water around. in a developing world you don't have that. i mean, people are going to be under duress and so the plan, everybody, is to feed 9 billion people by 2050 because people are still interacting. can we say interacting? >> sure. >> yes. >> quote-unquote. >> best wishes to the bride also. still interacting and there will be 9 billion people but we want to feed them with 2% left arable land and this can be done if we all get together. we're that close to figuring the whole thing out. >> you're the beyoges nce of science. >> thanks, guys. happy autumn. >> you are the king bee we're going to call you that. the king bee, she's the queen
one of the biggest musical events of the year. this gathering is about far more than entertainment. >> that's right. 1.2 billion people currently live in extreme poverty and it will take more than a single charity business or government to stamp it out. there's got to be a coordinated attack and so today we're here to launch the good fight. the timing of today's festival could not have been any better perfectly cohen coinciding with the pope's visit, francis is a longtime advocate for the poor dating back to his time as arch bishop of buenos aires, and that's why it's no surprise that during this joint address to congress this week pope francis called on law makers of the world's wealthiest nation to take, quote, courageous action against poverty. >> how much has been done in this first years of the
millennium to raise people out of extreme poverty. i know that you share my conviction that much more still needs to be done and in times of economic hardship has plenty of global solidarity must not be lost. >> the pope also implored congress to fight tirelessly against the cycle of poverty defined in economic terms as the phenomenon in which poor families become trapped in poverty for at least three generations. >> i would encourage you to keep in mind all those people around us who are trapped in a cycle of poverty. they, too, need to be given hope.
the fight against poverty and hunger must be fought constantly and on many fronts. >> once that cycle gets going, it's unlikely to stop without some sort of intervention. it's now reached that point for far too many around the world and that's the very reasonable we're here today. let's bring in casey hunt, she's in philadelphia with the pope. casey, help us put together here the role pope francis plays in solving global issues like income inequality and poverty. he certainly made it one of his central pieces to his visit to america. >> reporter: willie, as you pointed out, this is something that defined pope francis' career as a pastor. this is his flock, people who have lived their entire lives in poverty particularly starting in those slums of ban s of buenos when he came here to the united states and particularly washington he said, do you know what, john boehner and mitch mcconnell, i'm not going to have lunch with you at the capitol
i'll have lunch with the poor people of washington, d.c., and that's what he did. you've heard the theme woven throughout all of his speeches and i think you'll hear it again and we're moments away from him taking the stage at independence hall a storied place in american history and he's really tied every political issue he's to h touched on to this. pope francis tied it in to a lack of economic opportunity and saying that's something that really makes it harder for families to get by and stay together. we're anticipating that's really going to be a focus when he comes here to philadelphia for the world conference on fami families. but we should also point out francis himself lives in a way that reflects this emphasis he has on the world's poor. he's declined to take up residence in the enormous usual papal apartments at the vatican. occupying a smaller set of rooms instead. we've, of course, seen him driving that tiny fiat around instead of one of the larger limousines that normally cart
many of our dignitaries around. and i would also say when he became pope he found out there were homeless people living right outside the vatican and if you know you know how palacious it is and the renaissance and workges of as of art. it's fabulous. he told those at the vatican to have showers installed at the public bathrooms for them to use and he hired a barber to come by once a week and offer them free haircuts. willie? >> absolutely. setting a tone. and he talked a lot about those things at his mass at madison square garden last night here in new york city about this being a big city and let's not forget the people who live in the shadows. today taking that message with him to philadelphia. casey hunt, thank you. >> reporter: thank you. let's get another check with thomas roberts backstage. thomas? >> hey, guys. i left the action huck which b good and i ran in to kerry washington and i figured i would
get tackled because i'm going to walk on the stage. kerry was a close maybe to come with me. but i want to show you what it's like as all the acts and the first lady and the vice president will be walking out here to this -- and they'll be able to see you guys, too. there's alex, willie, and janet, right over there. but this is the view everybody is going to have. and they're going to have this view of all the people. hey, folks! say hi. that's it. so, yes! all right, so -- you can tell they're really excited. >> thomas, you look really, really good standing on that stage. >> thank you, thank you. >> you look like a natural. it's almost eerie. >> i think i'm tempting fate about getting tackled by security. but i think we're -- >> you look like you belong there, thomas. >> we are hearing -- there you go with the applause. we are nine minutes away. but this is amazing how gorgeous the setup is for the acts that will be here tonight. and look at this, the backdrop
beyond the great lawn here in central park. here is one of the signs i was handed as a prop to get us all involved, we are not a jen ras of bystanders, are global citizens. go ahead and check out the #globalcitizensfestival and the website tell us how you want to become a global citizen. we'll be back in the action hub with soledad o'brien and olivia wilde and stephen colbert will drop by. i'll send it back to you guys. gluf can see from the shot how beautiful it is. you couldn't ask for a better day for this thomas. we'll see you in a little bit. look who is sitting down. you turn around and you are sitting there. >> it's a good day, 75 degrees. >> i will take that. talk about your involvement with the day. >> oh, my god, i'm so excited, you guys. it's an amazing day. it's global awareness for something very important eradicating poverty and we get to see eddie voter and chris
martin. it's a great combination. >> not too bad. >> it's pretty much everything. what's so great also within the tena anets they are fighting fo beyond extreme poverty is something you are very passionate about environmentalism and going green. >> absolutely. going green. i've been working with an amazing organization for the past, god, seven years i want to say, opportunity international which is the microfinancing organization. it's exactly what we've been doing. going in africa and nicaragua and seeing the effect of -- of mainly women -- >> yeah. >> -- being privy to, you know, loans and the first thing they do is put their kids in school with the money that they give back and that really is the could to eradicating poverty. >> well, girls run the world. i mean, there's -- >> beyonce! >> that's actually true. >> yeah. >> women play a huge, huge role in tackling these problems and solving them. >> absolutely. and it's about time.
i just feel like we are in a moment right now. there's a momentum just -- everyone's aware. there's been an awakening among people, and what a great event to celebrate that awakening and people want to help. and this is -- you're giving people an opportunity to do just that and celebrating it in a fantastic way. >> malin, what do you hope people watching at home and couldn't get to be here tonight take away from this day and take action off this? >> well, great concert. inspiration. >> good jams. >> can't lose there. >> but, you know, to get curious. and go see. it's not that difficult to take little steps to do something. it's very tiny steps. go on global citizens website and see what you can do. go and start doing your research. it really is knowledge is power. and so, you know, i think that a lot of people just kind of feel like everyone wants to help but they don't know where to start. so, just get on their website. see the little things you can do. sign a petition, you know, wherever you want to get involved, start getting active. it's not that difficult.
welcome back to our live coverage of the 2015 global citizen festival. >> how excited are you right now, janet, on a scale of one to ten? >> one to a million. i don't know. i'm so excited. i just can't wait to see the stage and see who gets on this stage tonight from the celebrities that are coming in to introduce every big headliner to the people out here right now who are going to probably the freak the -- out. >> i'm not for dating myself on this broadcast, but i will say
something that i remember the we are the world concert which was, like, a political thing in my adolescence and this kind of feels like that in terms of the star power, the music, the moment, the action. it's a fairly big deal, willie. >> do you know what i love every one of the faces we're showing right there nobody paid $100, $1,000 at some online broker. they did something to get here. they committed to an action. they performed an action that made the world a little bit better, so everyone you see is here for a good reason and for the right reason. it's contributing to this cause. >> it's not people who are just kind of making cameo appearances in terms of stars and you know this well because you interviewed salma hayek, these are people that are engaged in the issues on a long term. >> and using salma as an example she's done this work for ever 20 years. and she went with mother teresa
of calcutta and bathed over f d and she didn't want me to bring it up. people on the stage from salma to beyonce are do-ers. >> two big twoers are coming up. >> we've got a couple of big do-ers on a lot of different levels and the line-up is unreal. coldplay is about to take the stage. there may be some guest appearances. we won't say who. ed sheeran is coming up. common is going to perform. beyonce is going to be here. pearl jam, it's going to be a blast. they're going to close out the night and the we've been promised interspersed in all this you may see people aren't on the schedule popping up here and there. >> you'll see some guy leonardo dicaprio who will appear at some point. there's enough to feast your eyes and ears on for several hours which is why we'll be here walking you through all of it. >> and what's been a cap to a remarkable few days in new york city as we've said already, pope francis was in this very park 23
hours ago parading through about 80,000 people and now 60,000 more people have showed up on another very special day. >> which makes you wonder what is going to happen tomorrow in central park. if you had the pope on friday, you have beyonce, ed sheeran, coldplay tonight, pearl jam, i'm going to stay overnight and camp out. >> back to frisbee golf. should we head up to the stage? stephen colbert and hugh jackman. >> welcome! welcome! welcome, citizens of the globe! it is i, stephen colbert! the largest man on the planet. i don't know where my puny
co-host hugh jackman is right now. but while we wait for him, i shall entertain all of you. watch, watch, global citizens, as i run around the stage. i said run around the stage. yes. yes. yes, thank you, legs. thank you. now, for your viewing pleasure observe while i dance. i caper about the stage nimbly. yes. yes! oh, i should have worn a cup before i did this. and now, and now ladies and gentlemen, before your eyes, the world's largest cartwheel. >> all right, all right, all right. that's enough. that's enough. the cartwheel was not part of the deal, stephen. >> ladies and gentlemen, give it up for hugh jackman! >> oh, yeah. all right, can i put you down now, stephen? >> hold on just five more
seconds, hugh, you've almost earned enough global citizens points to co-host the festival and done! >> all right. >> thank you. thank you, hugh. thank you for supporting your fellow man. and now how about this incredible crowd? >> yeah! they are beautiful. 60,000 people all here, wanting to make the world a better place and four people down here hoping this clears out so they can continue their frisbee game. i see you. welcome. >> welcome, everybody. i have to admit, hugh, i don't know about you, but i'm a little nervous, so i'm just going to picture all 60,000 of you in your underwear. just like many of you are currently picturing hugh in his underwear. >> who says i'm wearing underwear? anyway.
are you ready for an incredible day? all right. okay. put your hands in the air. and i want you to wave them like crazy like you care deeply about the issues facing our world! >> whoo! >> let's give it up for global poverty! whoo! >> whoa, hey, hey, stephen, no, no, no. >> what? >> let's give it up for ending global poverty. oh, by the way -- yeah. exactly. and all of you who actually cheered for global poverty, you are at the wrong concert i'm afraid, i'm sorry. >> stand corrected. whoo! >> exactly. what an incredible event. and you guys all made it happen. yes. you are all global citizens. you tweeted at world leaders about ending polio. you signed anti-poverty petitions. you demanded clean water and healthy food for millions in need, and now you have actually made the impossible happen.
you have secured a place to sit in central park. yes! >> and with your efforts we can achieve the goal of ending extreme poverty by 2030. that -- that is a noble goal, and pay i point out it is before many of you will have paid off your student loans. good for you. we will tackle that in the next global citizens festival. but, first, let's talk about why we're here today. the u.n. is meeting in new york right now, just a few avenues away. >> so, if you are driving it's about three hours' drive just down there. but global citizen wants to make sure that the world leaders hear your voices here today. so, please, please, let them hear your voices again if you believe that girls deserve access to education, let them hear you! >> whoo!
if you believe that everyone on earth deserves access to clean drinking water, make some noise! >> exactly. >> if you believe in protecting the environment and biodiversety, make some animal noises! >> hugh -- >> yep. >> -- why aren't you making animal noises? >> i was. i was do a koala. they have a diet dignity. beautiful animal. >> that's true. friends, thank you for being here. we have an incredible show for you today. pearl jam. ed sheeran. >> yes! >> coldplay! common, torey kelly and beyonce! whoo! >> also joining us is going to
be kerry washington, salma hayek-pinault, olivia wilde and my favorite global scitizen deba lee furness. >> remember, uf all got here by being outstanding global citizens yourself and no joke, the stars are here to see you and to thank you, us included. >> that's right and we actually have the best seats in the house. thank you, guys. >> but enough from us, let's check in with the biggest celebrity here today. >> ladies -- ladies and gentlemen, the earth! the earth. >> home, it means such completely different things to every person in the world. it's a house. it's a city. it's a country. home is something you want to protect.
people will go to extraordinary lengths to preserve their home. people love their homes. and if they don't feel that they have a home, they'll risk everything to find one. the further we find ourselves from home, the more we miss it. it's a question of perspective. of distance. and pretty much every single person who has been displaced over the last 50 years has come to the same conclusion. it's the whole planet that's our home. >> the earth was small light balloon and so touchingly alone. our home that must be defended like a holy ring. >> when you're finally up at the moon looking back on earth all those differences and nationalistic straights are pretty well going to blend, and
you're going to get a concept that maybe this is one world. and why the hell can't we learn to live together like decent people? >> on the first day up in space we all pointed to our home countries. the third or fourth day we were pointing to our continents. by the fifth day, we were aware of only one earth. >> we have this connection to earth. i mean, it's our home. >> wherever we live, whatever language we speak or food we eat, the earth is our home. we have to take care of it. and we should look out for everyone else who lives here. that has got to be our goal. that's why we need the goals.

so, as you know, global citizen is all about bringing people together in the same -- in the same cause, people with the same interests. people that maybe were more on our own in our bedrooms we feel what can we do to help things when we see the news is so crazy. and i personally and we as a band, joined up because we thought like other people had the same concerns and the same passions. and then events like today just make us all feel, like, wow, loads and loads of people care about the same stuff, and so it gives me hope. on that theme, we thought, well, we could just appear as coldplay the famous english band or we could have a moment in our set where we crossed generations with someone much more talented and much more good looking and by association made ourselves look better, which i'm sure is what you agree we need to do. and with that in mind i turns to
my kids apple and moses, and i said who would be the awesomest person to come and sing with us and after weeks of deliberation the amazing young singer that is coming out to sing with us today and she's had to move her whole thing around to come through at the last minute, ariana grande. thank you for being here, ariana. come and stand here. >> thank you for having me. >> i was going to wear that outfit. thank you for being here. this is a song written by the handsome esst man in the world, harry styles, he couldn't be here and he asked us to cover it for him. this is a beautiful song, we just practiced it today.

global goals wheel. can you see them all up there? so, what we need is for you guys, your action, your voices, to world leaders to make sure we can hold them to account. are you up for that? okay. >> we can achieve every single one of these. let's take a look at this year's goals! it takes a certain -- >> it's harder than it looks. you can try that. >> it takes a certain type of musical talent to suck at that, thank you so much. >> our first goal, our first goal is ending poverty in all its forms, ladies and gentlemen. >> that is a great first goal. dream big. >> and then we have other crucial goals. we want to end hunger. we want to promote sustainable

this is one of the greatest opportunities that we have. if we can connect them, we can lift hundreds of millions of people out of poverty. if everyone has access to the tools, knowledge and to the connectivity, if we are all connected we can achieve our global goals. that's why this morning i spoke to the united nations. over the next few days, a lot of focus is going to be on world leaders but if we have to achieve real change we need you and leaders in every community to make their voices heard. tonight is a part of something very important. we are not a generation of bystanders. we are all global citizens. let's go connect the world. >> whoo! so, being a global citizen means learning about and taking action on the world's biggest challenges. it also means inspiring others to take action with you. i want to remind you that
today's show is going to be live streamed on youtube which is great for all global citizens all around the world who can all be here with us tonight. >> the wireless global citizen award provides $100,000 to support the work of a global citizen who's taking direct action to help end extreme poverty. let's welcome alex wiselet from the wiselet foundation and scott menard global chief investment officer at googenheim partners to announce this year's winners. >> on behalf of googenheim partners a global investment firm i am honored to be standing here in front of an audience of 60,000 people driven to change making global poverty an end.
and doing the meaningful and measurable work to bring about the change that is necessary to millions of people in the world. i'm not here because googenheim partners but because of the work that has gone on by all of you. in the words of the holy father papa francesco, each individual in every community is called to be an instrument of god for the ending of poverty around the world. at goonenheim partners we've made it our mission to find, advance and to invest in innovation, yet proven solutions to local and global problems alike, the waislet's global citizen award is just one way to
join and enlist others to end extreme poverty by 2030. and i am honored to be part of that. >> wow! it sure is a star-studded evening, and it's wonderful to see some friends and fellow aussies like hugh jackman here to support the cause. the real stars, of course, are those people at the grassroots level around the world working tirelessly to help bring an end to poverty. i created the waslet's global citizen award in partnership with the global poverty project to shine a light on their work and to help them do even more. we're inspiring one to inspire many. now, after losing a brother and a sister to hiv-aids, this year's winner has worked tirelessly for 14 years to help
thousands of orphans who have lost their parents to this terrible disease. he has succeeded -- he has succeeded by building schools, introducing sustainable farming, and empowering mothers and grandmothers. please welcome the winner of the 2015 waislet's global citizens award to c.j. jackson caguri. >> thank you so much for all of your incredible work. one more round of applause. >> a big deal there the 2015 waislet's global citizen award for impact, innovation and poe potential, four finalists advanced and you are looking at the winner. our congratulations to him.
we'll go to see what she has to say. >> we're not a generation of bystanders, are we? so join us by becoming global citizens working together to make the world a better place. please welcome michelle sullivan, president of the caterpillar foundation and sir martin surell ceo of wpp. >> hello, fellow global citizens. what a day. i am michelle sullivan and i am also a global citizen at the caterpillar foundation. and we believe that collaboration not competition is the way to support working together and global citizens around the world have been a powerful force for change over the past few years.
you have helped achieve game-changing successes and education for girls and women around the world. sustainable agriculture, clean water and sanitation. now, with the launch of together stronger campaign, we are making a major commitment to promote the kind of collaborations that will make sustainable change possible. bringing clean water, healthy food, gender equality, security, and the path to prosperity to those without. there are 60,000 people here and millions of global citizens also around the world who gave their time to make the world a better place. on behalf of caterpillar and the caterpillar foundation, and all the companies that are joining the movement to end extreme poverty, thank you all for your commitment.
we are all global citizens, and together we are stronger. thank you. >> thank you, michelle. >> thank you. >> i think we in business tend to overcomplicate things. simply put, doing good is good business. particularly when you're in the business of helping companies build brands and brand value over long periods of time as we are. given this purpose, you would do nothing to upset consumers, to upset governments, to upset ngos and indeed any other stakeholder. being a good global citizen in partnership with the public sector is critical to eradicate extreme poverty and for us to do
our best to live on a healthy planet for all. thank you very much. >> and before we go to the action hub to see how many actions are being taken a reminder that we are being streamed on youtube so tell your friends. thank you. >> thank you, katie. it's all happening right here in the action hub. the action is exploding on globalcitizen.org. with us we've got tori kelly and aaron richards and bridget moynihan. >> all working very hard. >> taking action and pushing the total number of actions up which is critical. >> we still have a long way to go as we have hours of the concert left but we have usher, damon john and united states representative charlie dent with us tonight as well. guys, it's good to have you here. >> it's a pleasure to be here. thank you so much for taking acti action for farmers around the world, together we can end hunger in a generation, all
right? supporting agriculture we can end hunger and malnutrition by 2030. leaders, it is a responsibility. take action. make this a reality. on world food day we need you to make sure that the rest of the world understands that agriculture matters, all right? >> in three weeks, key leaders are meeting in italy for world food day. with oxfam and one we are calling on prime minister renzi of italy to outline how the g7 will lift 500 million people in developing countries out of hunger and malnutrition by 2030. >> the voices of global citizens make a big difference in politics. i value when my constituents contact me about the issues that matter to them. if my constituents e-mail me about a specific piece of legislation, i make sure that my team has fully researched the issue. ultimately elected leaders are
here to represent you. >> so, congressman, you're telling me that congress people, elected officials when we reach out to them it actually impacts what they do and how they feel about an issue? >> absolutely. when we get contacted we keep very specific notes of how many contacts, who contacts us and what they contact us about. i believe every member of congress and the senate does that. >> all right. good to know. all right, thank you congressman and usher, thanks, guys, appreciate it. back to the stage. >> a very good evening to all you global citizens. hello. tonight we're changing lives. the commitments made on this stage so far this afternoon will help over 7 million people enjoy a better life and a brighter future. but tonight is just the beginning. and we must all play our parts. that includes business. and here is paul pullman ceo of unilever to tell us more.
>> hello, everybody. first of all, thanks for being here. above all, more importantly, thanks for showing the world that there is another way. a better way. young people get it. global citizens get it. and do you know what? increasingly a lot of people in business get it. business can be the biggest contributor to ending poverty. or it can be one of the biggest causes of the challenges that we're facing. there's no business case for enduring poverty. we need a new way, open, inclusive, and sustainable. that's the business model of the future. businesses increasingly understand this. but we need to have to go further and deeper. and we need your help. you can make a difference. my message tonight to you is simple, hold business to account. reward those companies that are
trying to do the right thing. and withhold your dollars from those who aren't. this week can mark the beginning of a fairer world and a brighter future for all. and with your help, we can make this happen. thank you very much. >> you're watching the global citizen festival on msnbc. up next, a young man named leonardo dicaprio.

shelter, food, clean water, education, and basic medical care are seen no longer as privileges for some but is an inalienable human right for all. our efforts here will be in vain if we do not also address the forces that are threatening to destroy our very planet. humanity's only home. the debate is now over. recently the u.n.'s panel on climate change issued a historic report. it concluded without equivocation that climate change is occurring on all of our continents and in all of our seas driving ocean acidification, the destruction of our ice sheets, dessertfication, hurricanes and catastrophic heat waves. now, this is hardly new news to any of us, but it went on to say that the first people to suffer
the effects of these calamities, the first in the global line of fire will be the world's poor and most marginalized. 2015 was the hottest year in recorded history. what will this bring to humanity? experts are predicting that in africa alone 50 million children will be malnourished in the coming decades. as climate, poverty are the two dominant factors and food insecurity in south africa. right now europe is paralyzed trying to absorb the influx of millions of syrian refugees, but more than a billion people, most of them in asia -- sure, tv has evolved over the years.
welcome back to the global citizen festival concert in central park. we just saw leonardo dicaprio talking. >> and you were -- you know, i have to say it's -- >> i don't know if -- >> leo is a rare bird. speaking of birds, avian life, he's a rare bird. you don't actually hear from leo in the name-stage, multiartist platforms it was great to him talk about an issue close to him the environment. he was talking about environmental refugees which, of course, is a major concern for the global community. >> you can gauge by the roar of the crowd the level of the star. we heard a huge roar and the audience started to stand up and we turned around and leonardo had gotten on the stage. only at the global citizen festival tosses to the president of the world bank who tosses to big bird. >> what do we have coming up in
a few minutes, janet? >> in a few minutes ed sheeran. >> kerry washington may also be gracing the stage. >> she's one of the co-hosts tonight so she'll be up there to introduce ed sheeran. >> this is the most envy worthy green room in the world right now. >> and here we are up here. we should be back behind the stage with thomas. >> who do we need to talk to to get to the green room, willie? >> i don't know. thomas roberts might be our way in the door. ed sheeran is coming up next and he's an incredible artist who has exploded over the last year or two. he was on tour a couple years ago for taylor twist aswift andg out the same stadiums where he opened for her a few years ago. >> taylor swift is a fairy god mother for the music and the music industry and her letter to apple basically sort of changed their policy and taylor swift can seemingly do no wrong and ed sheeran is a classic example of that. >> she's part of everyone's squad and she's part of
everyone's squad. >> squad goals, include taylor swift blessings. >> and an extended bit from the world bank and "sesame street" getting together. >> exactly. >> now i believe we'll turn it to kerry washington who will get us to ed sheeran. let's watch. >> what's up, new york? please welcome the recently crowned top musical act in the united states, a personal favorite of mine, singer-songwriter ed sheeran!

end extreme poverty. and we can only -- yes, we can only meet our goals by working together. >> so the question is, what can you guys do? it's very simple. call your leaders, go to the u.n. yes, go to the u.n. but again, do not go halfway to the u.n., or you will end up in times square being attacked by a fake elmo. so you know the goals by now. clean water, gender equality, sustainable energy, a healthy environment, spending less time on facebook, getting all the beatles records on vinyl, driving a zamboni -- >> we actually tried that. >> yeah? >> and it's not all it's cracked up to be. >> let's take another look at the lives we've affected tonight. >> the effect-a-tron 5,000.

>> india's a young country, more than half of our population is under the age of 25. the global goals, we share the desire of the youth of india to see universal sanitation by 2019 and to end poverty in india by 2030. so do all my fellow indian friends in the crowd, i want you to make some noise and tell the global citizen people out here, that we want this to happen in india! [ cheers and applause ] >> hi, chris here from the band coldplay. i'm in mumbai, been looking all over india for the perfect person to come and sing in central park tonight, september 26th, 2015. sam, my friend, has the answer.
who is it? >> good evening, i'm francis rivera in new york. we'll get back to central park and the global citizens festival in just a few moments, but we also want to get you up to date on pope francis in philadelphia don't on his final leg of his first ever visit to america. about one hour from now, the pontiff will make his way to the annual festival of families. last hour, francis held a meeting with the hispanic community and other immigrants at independence hall. >> translator: i ask if any of you have emigrated to this country at great personal cost but in the hope of building a new life. do not be discouraged by
whatever challenges and hardships you face. i ask you not to forget, like those who came here before you, you bring many gifts to this nation. [ applause ] >> translator: please don't ever be ashamed of your traditions. >> pope francis receiving a huge show of support in philly. thousands in fact lining the street to wave at the people's pope. >> this is bigger than a michael jackson concert. i never thought i'd see it. you know michael jackson draws a crowd, but this guy draws a real crowd, man. i can't believe it. >> well, the pope arrived in philly from new york city, greeted by cheers as he walked off the plane. and as usual, he went off script, stopping his motorcade
♪ >> in addition to the huge musical acts, many world leaders have taken to the main stage to commit resources to ending extreme poverty. >> thank you for your time and i am pleased to welcome another fighter in the battle against climate change and global poverty, dr. yung kim, president of the world bank. you guys have fun, thank you. >> hey, global citizens, thank you for coming out to fight poverty. but what does it mean? we at the world bank fight poverty every day, but what does
it mean to live in poverty? today, 2.4 billion people don't have access to toilets or hygiene. affecting their dignity, their health, their safety, and their future. last year the world bank group committed $15 billion over five years to tackle this challenge. together with partners like the united nations, brak, wateraid, water.org and one drop, i'm proud to say that we've already provided $4 billion, which will give at least 20 million people access to safe sanitation and water. we are helping countries protect their citizens and educate them about healthy behaviors, especially children.
>> you had major corridors that were pitch black. those things had to change. we wanted to restore our lighting system in the city. you can have the greatest dreams in the world, but unless you can finance those dreams, it doesn't happen. at the time that the bankruptcy filing was done, the public lighting authority had a hard time finding a thing. citi did not run away like some other bankers did. citi had the strength to help us go to the credit markets and raise the money. it's a brighter day in detroit. people can see better when they're out doing their tasks. young people are moving back in town. kids are feeling safer while they walk to school, and folks are making investments and the community is moving forward. 40% of the lights were out, but they're not out for long, they're coming back.
>> can i ask you a quick question? why is it important to be a global citizen? >> because we have no choice. we are global citizens. no matter where you live, who you are, this is our planet, so it's important to be here. >> how exciting is it that there's so much energy being focused on a movement like right now and so much attention? >> it's so important. it's really so important here with the migrant crisis. we need to get together as one family. the pope said it last night. >> so good to see you. >> thank you. >> have fun tonight. bye-bye. >> just talking to sting, those are the kind of moments that happen here at the global
movie geeks. sports freaks. x1 from xfinity will change the way you experience tv. >> welcome back to new york city and central park. the sun beginning to set out here. getting a little cool. we're coming up on the heart of the order. beyonce, just a few minutes away, pearl jam, the first lady of the united states and vice president joe biden. for now, we're going to the action hub. >> yes, this is working and it's amazing. so this segment is going to be focusing on polio and education. as you can see, we have a full house here with us. sol dad. katie holmes. megan, kajul, bill nigh, sophia
bush, neeve schulman is here. katie, tell us about the actions you've been taking tonight and why. >> i've been calling on commonwealth leaders to make sure they step up. >> excellent. >> and there's no better way to demonstrate that this is possible but through the eradication of polio. megan, can you tell me what actions you've been taking. >> in the last decade, global efforts have put tens of millions of kids into school, but there's still so much work to be done. 58 million kids do not have access to primary school. everyone deserves 12 years of quality education. >> so of course we're going to send it back to the main stage, but we encourage everybody to get out the website and sign up. now back to the main stage. >> hi. hi, everybody.
how you doing? i have to keep it brief. i got told to read something. since failing to join the backstreet boys in the early '80s, this gentleman went on to become the handsomest politician in america, she's here with his gorgeous super babe wife. please welcome the vice president of the united states and dr. biden! [ cheers and applause ] >> hello, new york! it's great to see you all. now i know -- i know elected officials aren't supposed to have strong views, but i love coldplay -- [ cheers and applause ] >> and by the way, something you don't know about chris martin, he's got a heart as big as his head. i'll tell you about that later, but chris, thank you very much. look, there are many different issues that bring us here tonight.
extreme poverty, climate change, standing up for women and girls, but while each of these concerns are distinkt, there's a deeper truth, all of them are strands of the fabric of our common humanity. they're connected by a simple universal truth that my dad taught me and my brothers and sisters. he used to say, joey, everybody, everybody in the world is entitled to be treated with dignity, everybody in the world. and so whenever or wherever dignity is denied, we're called to care, we're called to witness it, and we're called to work to change. and folks, here's the deal. i've been doing this a long time as you can tell, i married a much younger woman, 38 years
younger than i am -- [ cheers and applause ] >> but folks, all kidding aside, at no time in the history of the world has it been harder to hide injustice, whether it's in plain sight or in the darkest corners of the earth. and within each one of us, with each one of you, there's a light of conscience. and look, each of us has to move beyond, reach beyond ourselves. we have to be a light to the world, not in the world. that's what you're all here for tonight. look, i look out and i see a sea of global citizens, optimistic, determined, absolutely determined, rejecting the false premise that our challenges are mere fate with no solutions, and that protecting the universal rights is something equally
universal, because it is. this is all about possibilities. and it's within our reach. we can change the world. we really can. you can. and it's also true -- it really is also true -- i know i'm known as the white house optimist, but i'm optimistic because i know the history of the journey of this country. it's also true that at no time in history has so much power been available to make such a difference for so many people. and i refuse to believe -- i mean this sincerely -- i refuse to believe that we're not going to try. we can do this, you can do this, we can finish this job! [ cheers and applause ] >> we must. and ladies and gentlemen, now i want to introduce you to a friend of mine, named barack obama, happens to be the president of the united states. >> dignity, it's that basic
idea, that by virtue of our common humanity, no matter where we come from, or what we look like, we are all born equal, and that every person deserves to live free from want. together we've achieved historic progress so that more people around the world are living in the dignity they deserve. we've saved millions of lives from hiv-aids, malaria and tuberculosis. more communities are going to school and have clean water and hundreds of millions of people have been lifted out of poverty. but our york is not done. when so many mothers still die from childbirth, when so many children still die from preventable diseases, that is a moral outrage. it is a profound injustice, and we've come together as one world to realize the change that we seek. today we're setting new global goals for development, and every
nation, every sector, every government, every citizen, has to do our part. that's how change happens. that's how together we can uphold the inherent dignity of every human being.

>> welcome back to the 2015 global citizen festival from new york city central park. you're looking live at 60,000 people. 60,000 people. let's go back to the main stage to the prime minister of norway. erna solberg. >> thank you, stephen. i'll tell anyone who will listen that we can no longer be a generation of bystanders. so join me in holding your leaders accountable for achieving the new global goals. together we can make poverty history. and in fact, failing is not an option. so are you with me?
[ cheers and applause ] >> education opens the door to all kinds of opportunities. in northern vietnam, in malawi and elsewhere, children have told me they want education. they want to become teachers, nurses, doctors, and engineers. they want to contribute to their communities and to build their nation. so we must ensure that every child can have a 12 years of free, safe, quality education. [ cheers and applause ] and at least nine years should be compulsory. and we must reach the poor children, those trapped in conflict zones. to keep girls in school, good sanitation facilities are a must. norway plans to increase its
support for water and sanitation by at least $6 million next year. and we can use the global citizen festival as our collective mega phone to call for a massive increase in educational funding. norway is doubling its contribution to global education, including to the global program for education over the four-year period since my government took office. so global citizens, we have the power to turn the dreams of millions of children into reality, so let's start now. [ cheers and applause ] and with us, to push for education is the first lady of
the united states of america, mrs. michelle obama. please listen to her message to you, thank you. >> right now more than 62 million girls worldwide are out of school. many of them simply can't afford the school fees. some don't have safe transportation, or they live in communities that don't think girls are worthy of an education. but as i've traveled around the world, i have met so many of these girls, and they are so bright and so determined to make something of themselves, and that's where this issue gets personal for me. because i see myself in these girls. i see my daughters in these girls. these girls are our girls. and i simply can't walk away from them. so for me, this is truly a moral issue. and it's also a serious economic issue. we know that girls who go to
school earn higher salaries, and they can even help boost their entire countries' economies. girls education issues are also a health issue, they have lower rates of hiv and maternal mortality. that's why earlier this year the president and i launched a new initiative called "let girls learn," and working with the peace corps, with businesses and organizations, with countries across the globe, we're helping adolescent girls worldwide go to school and we need your help. so today, along with "girl rising," we're announcing a new campaign called "62 million gir girls" and we're asking you to get on twitter and share a photo of yourself and tell the world what you learned in school,
using the #62 million girls. those will be posted to our year book at 62 million girls.com to raise awareness about all the girls who aren't in school and to show the power of education to transform their lives. so i want you all to pull out your phones, tweet your photo right now, that's right, do it right now, using the hash tag, #62 million girls. i'm going to wait a moment to let you get started. okay, hope you've done it. now, as for me, in school, i learned how to speak up for myself. and i've already tweeted my photo, and i can't wait to see yours. >> that was the first lady, michelle obama, with a powerful message about gender equality, #62 million girls. the global citizen festival will be right back after this break
thriving. and most of the countries that are against it are struggling. just take a look at yemen versus sweden. global citizens, please welcome a man who has pledged to lead the world's first feminist government, the prime minister of sweden -- >> hello central park, hello new york! give yourself a big hand because you're worth it. you're doing so much good. let me assure you that i'm so glad to be here and i'm very proud to represent sweden and i'm very proud as a prime minister, to represent the first feminist government in the world. [ cheers and applause ] now in a world where the 80 richest people owns as much as
half of the global population, we need to be dedicated to hard work to end poverty, driven by the idea of international solidarity, and determined to achieve equality for everybody. and access to sanitation, especially, is crucial for global equality and for the rights and needs of women and girls. so as a feminist, i make this pledge. over the next 15 years, sweden's almost 10 million inhabitants will support efforts to improve access to sanitation for 60 million people throughout the world. [ cheers and applause ]
so our country's climate may be cold, but our people's hearts are warm. we may be a small country, but we will do our part for the greater good, the greater cause. let me also thank you very much. thank you all for not being bystanders. thank you for showing that the spirit of citizenship is global. and thank you once again, thank you for taking this journey for human dignity. together we will make a difference. thank you. [ cheers and applause ] >> okay, some people have partners in crime. i have partners to stop crime. with gucci i have an amazing partner to stop crimes and injustice against girls and woman. with global citizen, i have a partner against the crime of
extreme poverty. and now, i partner with all of you in this new social consciousness to take meaningful action. all of you may not be up here on the stage tonight, but you are the heroes of this movement. and i am sure that each of you inspire those around you, and now to inspire us, i have the honor to introduce you to our partner, a woman who is also a great mother, a true philanthropist, a social media power house, a collector of grammys, a volcano of talent, and a music legend, global

asking me to do this tonight. salma hayek, everyone at gucci, thank you guys. and ed sheeran, i love you. give it up for my dancers and my band. special thanks to hugh evans for putting this wonderful event together tonight. it's a very time of change emerging. and ladies and gentlemen, last but not least, i like for you all to give it up for the first lady. [ cheers and applause ] give it up for the first lady! of the united states of america!
boundless promise of girls worldwide. and that's really one of the reasons why i'm here tonight, because as i said -- i love you guys, too. i love you. but as i said in the video, that you saw earlier, and this is important, right now 62 million girls are not in school. and what's important to know is that these are our girls. they deserve the same chances to get an education as my daughters and your daughters and all of our children. and make no mistake about it, giving them that chance is at the core of our work to end global poverty.
it's the only way to insure that these girls can fulfill their potential, provide for their families, and contribute fully to their countries. and that's why if you haven't done so already, here's what i need you to do -- i need all of you to join our 62 million girls campaign right now. right now so here's what i want you all to do -- i want you to tweet or instagram a photo of yourself using the #62milliongirls. and i want you to answer this one question -- what did i learn in school? and then here's what i want to you do -- i want you to get everyone you know to do the same thing, too. all right? can we all do that? we're going to do it right now? >> yes, we can. >> i'm glad to hear that. thank you guys so much.
and now -- now i have the pleasure of introducing someone who is an inspiration to me, and to people around the world. our next speaker is an icon. a global celebrity who has the huge spotlight that follows him everywhere he goes. but he doesn't use that spotlight for his own glory or just to further his own fame. no, he takes that bright light and he shines it on the most urgent moral issues of our time. issues that a lot of folks don't know about. like how poverty is sexist for example. how it is, it hits women and girls the hardest. this man is a dear friend to me and my family, he's a role model for me and the president and our work on girls education. and so many other global issues. and i am so proud to introduce him tonight.
ladies and gentlemen, join me in welcoming the one and only -- bono. >> thank you, thank you, first lady what a first lady. thank you, michelle, it's very kind. you make me think of a lyric, "she's got both feet on the ground and she's burning it down. she's got her head in the clouds and she won't back down." ♪ this girl is on fire >> what a first lady and what a crowd, you're on fire. how you doing out there? how you doing out there in central park? be careful, it can be dangerous out there, believe me, i know what i'm talking about. i was 19 when i started working for nelson mandela in the fight
against apartheid in south africa. it looked impossible. but mandela used to say, it is always impossible until it is done. ten years ago aids drugs were just for the rich. trying to get them to the poor, they said, it was impossible. it was just i think 100,000 people on those drugs in the developing world. but i'm proud to tell you, 15 million people you will not likely meet, you are paying for their aids drugs, people said it was impossible, it is impossible until it is done. around here governments have to do what you tell them. if there's enough of you. it is always impossible, until it is done. all right. so to these global goals, to end poverty, inequality, and fix
climate change -- impossible, right? wrong. it is always impossible until it is done! say it -- it is always impossible until it is done. say it! always impossible until it is done. >> that's right, that's right. thank you. men and women, working together, as one. particularly the women. because as the first lady has just reminded you, poverty is sexist. and none of these goals are possible without goal number five -- the rights of women and children and girls to go to school. to own a farm. to own a home. to walk the streets safe from harm. to get connected, to get respected, to pursue their vision and not be suspected. to start a business to self-esteem to wake up in your
own dream. now i want to introduce you to five women you'll recognize one of them today. i bet you'll recognize all of them tomorrow. they're here to tell you that every child, every boy and every girl deserves an education. don't tell them it's impossible. they're here to show you how they're going to get it done. will you welcome, please, five extraordinary women. the new boss. >> i am shazam zan from pakistan. >> i'm iman isef from nigeria. >> i'm salame from syria.
>> i'm kana juss from pakistan. >> thank you. [ cheers and applause ] [ cheers and applause ] and i am malala from pakistan! i'm so thankful to all of you for your love, for your support, but i'm here standing with four young girls for a cause. for a mission. for a basic human right -- the right to go to school. the right to get an education. which every child deserves. which is the right of every
child. whether it's a child from syria, whether it's a child from syria or nigeria or pakistan. it's the right of every child. and i'm asking for a basic human right. i have a very small kind of dream. that is to see the world a happier place, a place where every child can have the right to go to school. where every child and every person has the freedom to live a happy life, to live a peaceful life. to live in safety. that is my dream. and i have this dream because there are millions of people, millions of children who do not have these rights right now. there are 59 million children
only on the primary scale who cannot go to school. of the 66 million girls are deprived of education. and that forces me, that forces all five of us to ask here today, that no world leader would want their children to be deprived of education. so why to ignore the rest of the world's children? why to ignore the rest of the world's children? in these global goals, i want education to be the top priority. because how can we end poverty? how can we insure health? how can we make sure that there is equality in society and there's prosperity in society when we deny the right to education? so education should be the top priority of our world leaders and i'm hopeful that they will look to the future and they will
invest in this field. it's not that there is lack of money in this world. it's not that there's lack of money. we have billions and trillions of dollars. but where the money goes, is military, is things that are useless and that are not useful to society. it is a book, it is a book and a pen. that can change the life of a child. it's not a gun, it's not a cl h clish. it was a gun that hit me in the side of my forehead. it was a gun that hit my two friends. it wasn't a pen but it was a pen that helped us to go forward in our life. education really means a lot to me and to the world's children.
so today i ask you, i ask all of you each and every one of you to join me in this movement. to insure that every child gets this right. not just primary education, but secondary, full complete 12 years of education for every child. every girl, all around the world. no child should be neglected. they are the future. they are the future. future should not be neglected. and let us walk together, let us walk together, join this movement. to make this world, not just a better, but the best place to live. where education is given to every child, education is hope, education is peace, education is a basic human right. will you stand with me?
will you stand with me? will you stand with amina? will you stand with saalam? will you stand with kainard? will you stand with chaziya? will you stand with those 66 million girls who are deprived of education right now? will you stand with all of us? who hope for a brighter future, who hope for a best future, will you stand with us? thank you so much to all of you and i'm hopeful that change will come, change will come, but change does not come itself. it's we, it's you, it's all of us. who walk together and bring that change. so let's be that change and make sure that this world gives the
basic human right to every child, which is education, thank you so much.

katie, tell us why you want to be here and what does it mean to be a global citizen? >> this is my third year attending this incredible event. it's part of our responsibility to be a part of making this change and ending extreme poverty by 2030. and that is so inspiring to me, i just want to be a part of it. >> so people hear the date and they might think that that seems far off. it's really not. how do we make this more achievable? >> well it isn't that far off and it's by continuing efforts like these and really working hard to make these changes and making it a better world for the next generation. >> we're off to a great start, katie, thank you very much. we'll send it back to you. >> back stage at the action hub with katie holmes, how is this for a hand-off at the global citizen festival. beyonce hands off to the first lady of the united states who hands off to bono who hands off to malala yousafzai.
>> and much respect to bono. because women and girls and their empowerment is not just a female issue, men should be involved. thank you, willie. but also just drives home the sort of global, the global nature of this and speaking of global, bill and melinda gates are taking the stage right now. >> if anyone ever tells you we can't do anything about global poverty and disease, please tell them this -- we have cut poverty and childhood deaths in the last 25 years in half. in half. now how did that happen? well there are lots of reasons. but i'll tell you the very biggest reason -- it's because we came together, all of you and the world, and decided this is something we're going to focus on. people from all walks of life decided we're going to do something about poverty and childhood death. >> we call ourselves impatient
optimists. optimistic because we know ambitious goals can be achieved when we all work together. impatient because we're not getting there fast enough. but there's a plan. and that's where you come in. >> if we're going to make the progress we need over the next 15 years to end extreme poverty, we need you. >> we need you to hold your leaders accountable. the leaders who made promises this week in new york and who set goals? we need you to tell everyone about these goals. we need to you prove to the world what we already know -- that this is not a generation of bystanders, you all care about the world. you are global citizens.
>> i'm a global citizen. melinda is a global citizen. join us and with your help together we can end extreme poverty. and now i would like to introduce a -- a new generation of global leaders, the prime minister of italy, mateo renzi. thank you. >> that was bill and melinda gates telling the world, telling all of the audience here the 600,000 here that they should hold their world leaders accountable. way to go. >> and the bill and melinda gates foundation does an incredible job. there's hardly a city that doesn't benefit from their generosity. >> pearl jam coming right up.
my psoriatic arthritis i'm caused joint pain.o golfer. just like my moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. and i was worried about joint damage. my doctor said joint pain from ra can be a sign of existing joint damage that could only get worse. he prescribed enbrel to help relieve pain and help stop further damage. enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal, events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, nervous system and blood disorders and allergic reactions have occurred. tell your doctor if you've been someplace where fungal infections are common, or if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if you have persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. joint pain and damage... can go side by side. ask how enbrel can help relieve joint pain and help stop joint damage. enbrel, the number one rheumatologist-prescribed biologic.
we were asking the question, who could follow beyonce? who would want to follow beyonce and now the crowd is telling us that pearl jam can follow beyonce. pearl jam exploded on the scene in 1991 with "ten." for me it's junior in high school. >> for you it was elementary school. for you, you were in the cradle. >> pearl jam has been active in they deserve a crown jewel place at this moment at this time. have them coming up shortly, stay with us.

the very first of the new global goals is to end extreme poverty by 2030. ending extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity are the twin goals of the world bank group. please join me in welcoming dr. jim yun kim, president of the world bank group. >> good evening again, everybody. global citizens, i have some great news to share with you tonight. we've heard about so many problems in the world and these are real challenges. but we also have to highlight a great success. we made tremendous progress in the fight against extreme poverty. at the world bank group we go to work every day to end poverty by 2030. and i've got a big announcement to make today, since i was on this stage one year ago, 90 million people have lifted themselves out of extreme poverty.
i have another major announcement, even with the slow global economy, we estimate that next year 80 million more will lift themselves out of extreme poverty. but look, we can do better than that. if we work together to grow the economies, and invest in people, their health, their education and protect them from disasters, we can make this number go from just 80 to 100 million people lifted out of poverty next year. we accept this challenge at the world bank group. but it's going to take action from everybody, from governments, activists, doctors, students, but most importantly -- from all of you. hold your leaders accountable to make the world a better place, push everybody, demand more from everybody.
if we work together we can build a world that is more prosperous and just for all of us. next year when i'm standing here, if we do it, i'll be able to tell you that 100 million people were lifted out of poverty, because of you. thank you very much. i can feel the excitement down here, are you getting excited? i know. we're almost there. almost. all night. we've been taking actions. this is the final time we'll be out to see how the actions and how many and the commitments that we've been taking, that will affect lives. the final total, ladies and gentlemen, $92,061,708, it's a brilliant number it it completely underpins why we're all here today. thank you so much. this week the united nations and and 193 world leaders have
