Billie Eilish has teamed up with civic engagement platform Global Citizen, encouraging fans to do their bit to create a more sustainable world.

Via the Global Citizen website, fans can enter for a chance to win free tickets to the sold-out North American leg of Eilish’s Where Do We Go world tour.

Once entered, fans can continue to the Global Citizen portal and pledge to take action on a range of issues related to health; education; girls and women; finance and innovation; food and hunger; water and sanitation; environment; and citizenship.

In order to enter for tickets to more than one show on the 23-date run, fans must earn ten points, achieved by ‘taking action’ through the organisation’s rewards platform.

“I did not want you guys to have to buy tickets from scalpers, and I know you all still really want to come to the shows, so I teamed up with a great organisation called Global Citizen to help come up with a way to earn tickets,” the singer explained in a Twitter post. “We can tackle these challenges and create a more sustainable world.”

The Where Do We Go tour sees Eilish play arenas in Mexico, the USA, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Portugal, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy and the UK. The tour concludes in July, with four dates at London’s 20,000-cap. O2 Arena.

Eilish has also joined forces with non-profit Reverb to make her upcoming tour “as green as possible”. Plastic straws will be banned, fans encouraged to bring their own water bottles and recycling bins available at every show.

A ‘Billie Eilish Eco-Village’ will be present at every venue on the tour, an area where fans can learn about climate change and how to make a positive difference.

The singer will perform alongside Alicia Keys, Coldplay, Metallica, Red Hit Chili Peppers, Miley Cyrus and Shawn Mendes at the 2020 edition of the Global Citizen music festival, which takes place on 26 September in New York, Lagos and cities in Asia, Europe and Latin America.
