A new international awareness campaign “One World: Together At Home” is to be jointly aired by National Geographic and National Geographic Abu Dhabi on 19 April 2020.

The global awareness programme will be on air at 4am UAE time with a rerun on 19 April 2020 on National Geographic at 1 pm UAE time and on National Geographic Abu Dhabi at 9 pm UAE. The global special is also streaming at 9 pm UAE time.

Launched by international advocacy organisation Global Citizen, and the World Health Organisation, “One World: Together At Home” will show unity among all people who are affected by COVID-19 and will also celebrate and support brave healthcare workers doing life-saving work on the front lines.

Curated in collaboration with Lady Gaga, the “One World: Together At Home” broadcast special will include performances and appearances by Alicia Keys, Amy Poehler, Andrea Bocelli, Awkwafina, Billie Eilish, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Burna Boy, Camila Cabello, Celine Dion, Chris Martin, David & Victoria Beckham, Eddie Vedder, Ellen DeGeneres, Elton John, FINNEAS, Idris and Sabrina Elba, J Balvin, Jennifer Lopez, John Legend, Kacey Musgraves, Keith Urban, Kerry Washington, Lang Lang, Lizzo,  LL COOL J, Lupita Nyong’o, Maluma, and Matthew McConaughey,

“One World: Together At Home” is not a telethon — it is a historic, first-of-its kind global broadcast event to celebrate the heroic efforts of community health workers, and to support the World Health Organisation in the global fight to end COVID-19. The broadcast will feature stories from frontline healthcare workers on the COVID-19 response, commitments from philanthropists, governments and corporations to support and equip frontline healthcare workers around the world, with masks, gowns and other vital equipment, and to local charities that provide food, shelter, and healthcare to those that need it most.
