Don’t Miss: Global Citizen Earth Day @ Washington Monument Grounds, 4/18/15

Washington Monument

The Global Citizen Earth Day unites two movements to address two great challenges: Ending Extreme Poverty by 2030 and Tackling Climate Change

No Doubt, Usher, Fall Out Boy, Mary J. Blige, Train and My Morning Jacket will all be playing for free near the Washington Monument this coming Saturday, April 18.

‘Marking the 45th anniversary of Earth Day, Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day comes during a pivotal time to protect the planet and ensure that world leaders address key issues facing the next generation. Timed to coincide with the spring meetings of the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund, Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day will bring together global policymakers, finance ministers, environment and development NGOs, industry executives and high-profile artists.

Together, these world leaders will work to educate and inspire citizens to take immediate action to end extreme poverty and address climate change. The event is part of a widespread effort to mobilize global citizens in the climate and environmental movement, and the poverty and development movement to drive bold commitments from governments, businesses and individuals.’

There are three access points for the event:

1. Jefferson Drive and 15th Street NW
2. 17th Street and Independence (just opposite WW2 Memorial)
3. 17th Street and Constitution

Set times for specific bands will not be released, so get there early and don’t miss anything.
