Bono at the Global Citizen Festival

The Global Citizen Festival 2015, aimed at taking action against major global issues, took place on September 26th in New York's Central Park. At the festival, the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development, as agreed upon by world leaders, were unveiled and the #62MillionGirls campaign was kicked off by First Lady Michelle Obama.

Bono gave a rousing introduction to Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai and her fellow female activists, demanding the audience chant one of his favorite Nelson Mandela quotes, "It is always impossible until it is done."
