Volunteering for post-2015

Volunteerism is a powerful means of engaging people in addressing development challenges.

MY World rollout

promotion-activity-for-my-worldUNV is a partner in the rollout of the MY World, a global survey for citizens led by the United Nations and partners aiming to capture people's voices, priorities and views. MY World results feed the processes discussing the post-2015 development agenda. 

UNV Field Units and dedicated post-2015 volunteers have especially contributed to gathering offline votes for MY World. Going far beyond the plain implementation of the survey, volunteers engaged people directly and through other partners to vote for their development priorities. They reached out digitally-disconnected people, remote communities, impaired people as well as youth and women. They engaged with different age, gender and economic groups, and collaborated with local partners to promote civic participation through the survey.

The survey will stay active until the end of 2015. If continued beyond 2015, MY World has a potential to increase accountability by strengthening the citizen-state feedback loop, and to enhance opportunities for monitoring the new development framework.
