This summer, Coldplay invited Oxfam volunteers on their World Tour to encourage fans to get involved with the STAND AS ONE campaign.
Right now, more than 65 million people have been forced to flee war and persecution. Millions more are on the move because of natural disasters and poverty. The needs have never been greater, yet many countries have turned their backs.
Coldplay is also a long-time supporter of Oxfam’s work around the world to overcome poverty and injustice. By asking people to stand together, Oxfam and Coldplay aim to build a world where people forced to flee their homes have the support and protection they need.
In June and July 2017, Oxfam Canada ran a contest to select the Oxfam Ambassadors to join Coldplay on tour. The winners are granted free entrance to a Coldplay concert and expert training to excel at their Oxfam Ambassadorship.
By standing together, Oxfam is creating a human chain of supporters to show refugees that they are not alone. Together, we will make sure world leaders know that we won’t stand by while people suffer.
Coldplay’s Canadian tour dates are:
Toronto: August 21st and 22nd
Edmonton: September 26th & 27th
Vancouver: September 29th
