We’re thrilled to share with you the toolkit for the upcoming MY World Global Week of Action (May 5-11). You can find the toolkit and all the resources you need for online and offline engagement available at this link.
To date, more than 1.8 million people from 194 countries have voted for the world they want thanks to the brilliant efforts of partners like you.
The Global Week of Action (GWA) is a worldwide mobilization effort to gather an additional 500,000 votes.
These votes matter. The UN is working with governments everywhere to define the next global agenda to address extreme poverty and preserve the planet.
The data from these votes continues to be used by decision makers and inform various intergovernmental processes at the UN. Additionally, the data has been presented at the World Economic Forum, TedX events, SXSW, +Social Good, World Conference on Youth, and the African Union Summit among others.
Together we can make it happen! The more people we can engage, the more votes we drive, the more people around the world will participate in shaping the future of development.
You can download the toolkit for action and start sharing with your community today.

Why are we being asked to vote for/prioritize services, all of which are essential to human development indices? This shouldn’t be a question of either / or, and surveying people in this fashion isn’t adding any value to the Post-2015 process. What will the results tell us? At the moment they show that education is the most important priority (out of a possible 16), and ‘action taken against climate change’ is the lowest. Good luck achieving meaningful, sustained development without action on climate change. this failing underscores the problem of asking people who have nothing, whether they would prefer food, education or healthcare. Its almost like saying: we know all of these are important, but we can’t deliver on all of them, so which would you prefer? Why should I or any person have to make that choice?
Thank you for your comments. They are all important! Follow the conversation at worldwewant2015.org
