Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day

On April 18th, a quarter of a million people came together on the National Mall to build momentum towards a world without extreme poverty, to protect the planet, to stop climate change, and to enjoy some amazing music. Some of the world’s most influential leaders made HUGE commitments and in the months and years to come, we’ll be holding them to it. Riot.House was honored to produce the event and collaborate with so many talented individuals and organizations, amplifying the event’s critical message.
