WYA members add their voice to the UN Global Survey for Citizens on the Post-2015 Development Agenda

The United Nations is conducting "My World: a global survey for a better world" with the aim of allowing people across the world to tell the United Nations, and in particular the Secretary General’s High Level Panel, the most important issues they would like the post-2015 agenda to address. The World Youth Alliance (WYA) has registered as a partner in gathering survey answers and calls upon all its friends and members to join the poll by visiting http://worldyouthalliance.myworld2015.org to vote.

What is the post-2015 global development agenda?

The Millenium Development Goals (MDGs) have made a huge impact on the lives of billions, but there is still much more to be done to address extreme poverty, diseases and environmental crises. The global development agenda for the period after 2015 will build on the progress made on the MDGs while confronting new challenges. This survey comes from the desire to have the new development agenda result from a truly open and inclusive process that engages people from all parts of the world and all sections of society. From now until 2015, the UN wants as many people in as many countries as possible to be involved. 

Where do we come in?

WYA has a history of being the youth voice for authentic development. This is clearly stated in the WYA Charter and further explained in the WYA Declaration on Development which "puts forth a vision for development which holds human dignity at the center." Participating in this survey is another great opportunity to let members’ voices be heard.
