Global Citizen Festival

Saturday, September 28th, 2013
Central Park, Great Lawn
New York City

A world without extreme poverty is only going to be become a reality if we – as Global Citizens – create and commit to a new global partnership that involves us, charities, companies and governments around the world. The 2013 Global Citizen Festival is showcasing some of the leading global partnerships out there right now, and we’re working to be able to announce new partnerships that can create real impact for the world’s poor into the future.

You can find more information about the festival here.

I was born in Croatia, at that time Yugoslavia. My family moved to the US when I was very young, but I still treasure the memories of my grandfather teaching me how to protect myself against the "evil eye," my grandmother shopping early every morning, at the open air market, to buy the freshest vegetables for the day's meals, and the traditions that were the underpinnings of our society. Someone once noted that "For all of us that want to move forward, there are a very few that want to keep the old methods of production, traditions and crafts alive." I am a fellow traveler with those who value the old traditions and folk wisdom. I believe the knowledge they possess can contribute significantly to our efforts to build a more sustainable world; one that values the individual over the corporation, conservation over growth and happiness over wealth.
