Over 1 million people have answered MY World, the United Nations global survey to citizens- voting for education, health, honest and responsive government and jobs as basis for a better future. These results are now being presented in New York through an innovative and interactive new exhibit called “Listening to ONE MILLION Voices.”
October 2013, New York. The voices of the over 1,160,000 people who have voted in MY World in 194 countries have reached the United Nations through an innovative interactive exhibition called “Listening to One Million Voices”. Open to the public at Danny Kaye Exhibition Center at UNICEF headquarters in New York until November 28th, this exhibit brings to life the wealth of data collected from the survey all over the world and explains the results of this ground-breaking project through which the United Nations invites citizens to take part in the process defining the next development agenda.
Through three interactive giant screens visitors can explore global and regional and compare results among countries, age or gender groups to get a clear outline of what global citizens would like the next global agenda to include.
MY World has also generated an unprecedented mobilization and unleash of creativity around the world. This exhibition also aims to showcase the contributions by over 700 MY World Partners in 194 countries. From the remote villages in Nigeria to universities in Thailand, MY World options survey has become a platform for people to speak for their hopes and dreams.
This exhibition also invites all visitors to have their say and tell what issues are important to you as we debate the future post-2015 development agenda. Until 2015, MY World will continue to invite citizens to have their say at the United so that their opinions can be heard during the process which will design the post-2015 agenda that will build on the MDGs.
