How to end extreme poverty?
The world's 2000+ billionaires hold a total wealth of around $10 trillion. Economists have calculated that a simple global levy of only 1% on net wealth of $1 billion will annually raise $100 billion. Invested in United Nations' priority actions on poverty eradication this will be enough to end extreme poverty.Learn more
How will we do it?
Move Humanity creates awareness about extreme poverty and its consequences. We advocate for a UN resolution, creating the norm for all countries to enforce a 1% levy on net wealth of $1 billion. We propose that the levy will be used according to the UN SDG goals, and invested in the poorest countries. Eradicating extreme poverty is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development.Learn more
