Radio Everyone launches on 26th September at Global Citizen Festival, a free-ticketed event on the Great Lawn in Central Park in New York City. Headline acts for this year’s festival are Ed Sheeran, Coldplay and Pearl Jam. Radio Everyone will take highlights from the six hour Central Park Global Citizen Festival and share them with their global partners in the week following the event. These highlights will run alongside unique packages inspired by The Global Goals, with the aim to “Tell Everyone” that the goals have been agreed.
Speaking on the festival and Radio Everyone Richard Curtis said:
“Our aim is to gather an amazing volume of extraordinary radio content about The Global Goals and then pulse it across the world to everybody on the planet that listens to radio. We want to do this in the seven days after the Goals are adopted by 193 world leaders at the United Nations. By getting The Goals into people’s hearts and minds – and ears! – we can inspire the next generation of Global Citizens to be the first generation that ends extreme poverty, the most determined to tackle inequalities and the last to live with the effects of climate change.”
