Campaigning and advocating the Millennium Development Goals is as important as the elaboration of strategies to implement them. Many actions can raise awareness among the general population on what the MDGs are and in what way they can improve their daily lives or help the national governments to keep their achievement on the top of their list of priorities. Moreover, everyone can play a role. Here can be found tools to help you, whoever you are (an NGO who wants to plan a campaign, a youth who wants to know what he can do), to transform your aspirations into concrete actions.
|Millennium Campaign |
The Millennium Campaign informs, inspires and encourages people's involvement and action for the realization of the Millennium Development Goals. An initiative of the United Nations, the Campaign supports citizens' efforts to hold their government to account for the Millennium promise.
The Asia-Pacific MDGs Media Awards aim to generate better awareness and understanding of the MDGs in Asia-Pacific, and motivate journalists from the region to cover stories on how MDGs are being pursued in the region. It is also hoped that media will be stimulated, through the Awards, to become a driving force in accelerating national action toward achieving the MDGs.
