The concert, dubbed Global Goal: Unite for Our Future, will take place on 27 June, in partnership with the European Commission and Global Citizen – the same organisation that supported One World.
It will aim to “highlight the disproportionate impact Covid-19 has on marginalised communities – including people of colour, those living in extreme poverty, and other communities facing discrimination,” while “ensuring that no one is left behind in the global fight to tackle Covid-19”, as explained by Global Citizen.
Viewers around the world will be able to tune in, either online or on television.
Johnson told Global Citizen in a statement that he’s proud to take on hosting duties, adding: “The event aims to lift up the global community that is tackling equitable access to health care, and other enormous injustices facing our world. This critical moment in history requires all of us — so let’s join together to chart a better future, for everyone.”
