The evening of 25th of September during the UN General Assembly week brought together MY World friends from far and near, in person and via live web-stream – and these MY World friends had 5 million reasons to celebrate!
The hard work of dedicated MY World partners brought the voices of 5 MILLION PEOPLE from 194 countries into the United Nations. MY World has had very extensive support from a range of partners, over 700 organizations, including NGOs, heads of state, faith groups and youth movements who are still currently participating in its roll out and this collective achievement provides the perfect backdrop for a MY World Partner Recognition Event and MY World Award Ceremony which took place in New York during the UN General Assembly week.
This global survey, thanks to the dedication and enthusiasm of all is now the largest survey of its kind ever undertaken.
We are please to communicate that thanks to your support over 780,000 citizens from 194 countries have already voted for the issues that would make the most difference to their lives.
Listen to the inspiring words of Amina J. Mohammed, the United Nations Secretary General’s Special Advisor on the Post-2015 Agenda, recognizing the impact of the results gathered so far.
We encourage you to continue promoting MY World to your networks and help us to meet the one million votes target before the UN General Assembly arrival in September.
MY World success would have not been possible without the support of over 700 civil society organizations, youth groups, faith organizations, corporations and global personalities who have helped promote the MY World survey.
Event: 6 June 2013 14:30 – 16:00 (GMT+01 (BST)) Venue: London, Nairobi, Dhaka and Bogotá and streamed live online
The High-Level Panel, appointed by the UN Secretary General to advise him on the post-2015 agenda, reports on 30th May. Will the report live up to the hype?

This event provides a global audience with a chance to discuss the report with each other and with two key panel members. Continue reading “After the HLP report: responses from around the world”
The Guardian‘s Liz Ford interviewed ASG Amina Mohammed in Monrovia during the most recent meeting of the High Level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Process. Mohammed, who is also a member of the Leadership Council of the SDSN, is Special Adviser to SG Ban Ki-moon on Post-2015 Development Planning and is responsible for coordinating the various work streams on Post-2015, both inside and outside the UN system.
Mohammed said, “I don’t think we ever have enough time, but the time we have got is sufficient to get concrete ideas to shape what we want to do post-2015, drawing on so much that has already been done.” She also spoke about the inclusion of human rights, and the challenge of integrating so many different stakeholders and streams of work.
