One Direction premieres 'Dear World Leaders' film for action/1D

Liam Payne - **Strictly embargoed until 00.01 BST Tuesday 1st September** One Direction today (Tuesday 1st September) premiered the action/1D film, 'Dear World Leaders', a three minute, one-of-a-kind emotive and powerful film composed of hundreds of fan submissions describing the world they want to live in. The film, in support of the action/1D campaign, directly calls on world leaders to listen to the changes they want to see made, to make the world a better place for this generation and the next. Harry Styles said: "We've been overwhelmed by the fans' response to action/1D. They continue to amaze us with their passion and dedication, and this film goes to show how engaged they are in the issues that affect them. It's been inspiring to see and hear what matters to them and the world they want to live in." Niall Horan said: "We've had fans from all over the world tell us what matters to them, from equal rights for all to the eradication of poverty, I really hope world leaders take notice of what we and our fans are saying. Hillary Clinton tweeted us her support of action/1D last month - I'm hoping President Obama watches it next!" One Direction is now calling on the public to share the 'Dear World Leaders' film on social media, alongside the hashtag #action1D. The film will also be broadcast in front of thousands of fans at each of the remaining legs of the band's On The Road Again Tour. One Direction launched the action/1D campaign on 8th July. Since then, nearly 80,000 submissions of photos and videos calling out for change were received from 172 countries. The hashtag #action1D has seen a reach of 2.5 billion so far, and trended worldwide on Twitter for 11 hours following the launch of the project in July. The action/1D campaign is part of action/2015, a global citizens' movement which is united by the idea that 2015 can be the year when the world can set the agenda to end extreme poverty, tackle inequality and climate change - but on - London, United Kingdom - Monday 31st August 2015 (1 Picture)
