The MY World 2015 global survey is bringing the voices of residents from Jalisco, Mexico to the United Nations by asking them what issues make the most difference in their lives.

On 23 September, the UN Millennium Campaign and Corporativa de Fundaciones, A.C. signed a memorandum of agreement to roll out MY World in the State of Jalisco, Mexico. This week Corporativa de Fundaciones, A.C., held a press briefing where the following partners signed an annex agreeing to take part in the campaign: the Undersecretary of Planning and Evaluation from the Government of Jalisco, COPARMEX Jalisco, Instituto Jalicense de la Juventud, Federación de Estudiantes Universitarias, Colegio de Estudiantes Cientificos y Tecnológicos del Estado de Jalisco, Instituto Tecnológico de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, Campus Guadalajara, Universidad Jesuita de Guadalajara and the Unión de Sociedades de Alumnos del ITESO.

Nearly 400 dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers, mostly students and youth, are currently being trained to carry out the survey.  The Jalisco campaign will run from now until May 2015 and aims to reach at least 200,000 Jalisco residents using both online voting and paper ballots. By engaging students at universities across Jalisco, and young people through the State’s Youth Council as well as IMJUVE (the Youth Institute of Mexico) the campaign aims to extend across at least 80% of the state’s territory.

The results of the survey will not only contribute to the new sustainable development agenda at the UN, but according to David Gómez Álvarez, the Jalisco Undersecretary of Planning,  these citizen priorities will also become incorporated in the State Development Plan in 2015.
