Saturday’s Global Citizen Festival, held for more than 60,000 people in New York City’s Central Park, gathered a mind-boggling roster of musicians, activists, world leaders, actors, CEOs, and innovators to spread the message “We are not a generation of bystanders,” which was popularized globally on social media by hashtags #GLOBALCITIZEN and #GLOBALGOALS.

Global Citizen is a community of people who want to learn about and take action on the world’s biggest challenges—and use their power to get other people involved too. The Global Citizen platform was created by the Global Poverty Project, Ryan Gall and Riot House in 2012, as a hub for innovative campaigns that work towards a world where every child can survive and thrive. A world where every child has a chance to go to school, a world where women and girls are protected from violence, and where preventable diseases aren’t holding people back.

The event was spearheaded by Coldplay’s Chris Martin and featured global acts including Kenya’s Sauti Sol. Here’s a recap of Global Citizen Festival through Sauti Sol’s eyes:
