Music has been an important facet of the CHIME campaign, and in the past Gucci and CHIME FOR CHANGE presented THE SOUND OF CHANGE LIVE in London, which was the first global concert event in history dedicated to girls' and women's issues.

The Global Citizen Festival also shed light on the UN's new Global Goals for Sustainable Development program, which represent key targets for the next 15 years.
