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

Volunteers for MY World

myworld.banner.300x250.brandedMY World is a global survey for citizens led by the United Nations and partners which aims to capture people's voices, priorities and views until the end of 2015.  Its results feed the debate around the definition of the post-2015 development agenda. 

UNV Field Units and dedicated post-2015 UN Volunteers, together with local volunteers from across the globe, have been supporting the rollout of MY World as a way to involve people and promote volunteerism. They engaged with people from different age, gender and economic groups, especially offline, giving them the opportunity to express their views and promoting civic participation.

UN Volunteers have been focusing particularly on youth, bringing the survey in schools and universities, and raising awareness about the opportunity to contribute to the development and the implementation of the post-2015 agenda.
