Global Citizen Events

Global Citizen Events is an annual initiative that promotes the UN Sustainable Development Goals and celebrates the impact Okanagan citizens have in global and local humanitarian efforts.

Global Citizen Events are organized by a network of local humanitarian nonprofit allies. The overall objective is to create dialogue about specific goals, their relevance to our lives and to create a linkage between the general public and local and regional humanitarian organizations.

With a mission statement “Entertain, Educate and Inspire to Action”, Global Citizen Events works closely in partnership with GECCO, the Global Empowerment Coalition of the Central Okanagan, to coordinate events to highlight specific goals within the community. Find your opportunity to participate as a volunteer, sponsor and attendee!
