MY World is a global citizen survey to bring people’s voices into official debates about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Almost 10 million people from 194 countries voted in the first MY World survey to help define the global goals. After the goals were adopted, the MY World 2030 survey was launched to make sure every person can have their say on SDG achievement. From now until 2030, we want as many people in as many countries as possible to be involved in MY World. This is history in the making!
The Paris Agreement of 2015 is a remarkable example of collective leadership. No one individual, institution or country can claim to have singlehandedly created the Paris Agreement.
