National Geographic and Procter & Gamble have partnered with Global Citizen and RadicalMedia to create a new six-part documentary series, Activate. Helping to amplify awareness and tell these stories are Hugh Jackman, Common, Usher, Rachel Brosnahan, Darren Criss, Becky G., Priyanka Chopra Jonas and many others.
The series takes audiences from the stages of the Global Citizen Festival, the annual music event organized by Global Citizen, to the front lines around the world. Activists, policy makers and celebrities join together to inspire others to do their part to end poverty and save the planet. From the Philippines to Peru to Nigeria, each episode focuses on specific topics, including eradicating extreme poverty, ending cash bail, breaking down barriers to girls’ education, funding education for displaced children, ending plastic pollution, and helping to solve the water crisis.
Activate: The Global Citizen Movement from National Geographic and Procter & Gamble, is co-produced by Global Citizen and RadicalMedia and will air globally on National Geographic in 172 countries and 43 languages. The partnership will also include digital hubs on NatGeo.com and GlobalCitizen.org for viewers who want to go deeper on the issues highlighted in the series.
