Sub-Saharan Africa Investment is Encouraged by Global Citizen NOW.

This year’s Global Citizen NOW conference spotlighted the importance of long-term investments in Africa’s burgeoning youth population and the necessity of supporting young changemakers globally.

The conference, which aimed to channel resources toward fighting poverty, emphasized the crucial role of political, business, and philanthropic leaders in backing education and healthcare in the least-developed nations.

Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans stressed the significance of addressing these issues amidst the turbulent international landscape. Major appeals during the conference included requests for up to $6 billion for economic development in Africa and $600 million for a United Nations-led initiative supporting education during emergencies.

Evans emphasised how crucial it is to give people concrete, doable steps they can take to make a positive difference in the world, especially in light of the increasing polarisation and hopelessness in society. He was speaking to The Associated Press at the New York conference.

The conference recruited celebrities like Hugh Jackman, Michelle Yeoh, and Anitta to help it achieve its goals. In addition, Vice President Kamala Harris’s husband, Doug Emhoff, made an unexpected appearance to talk about the significance of men’s participation in the fight against sexism and in support of reproductive rights.
