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.
