Founded by local community leaders in 2003, Global Citizen Events is an annual initiative that promotes the UN Sustainable Development Goals and celebrates the impact Okanagan citizens have in global humanitarian efforts.

Our events—involving 500+ volunteers and 5000+ participants—encourage social responsibility and inspire positive change by thinking globally and acting locally.

In 2017, we changed out name from Global Citizen Kelowna to Global Citizen Events—since 2003, our events have grown to include communities all over the Okanagan, from Peachland to Lake Country and beyond!
