Millennium Development Goals - 1000 days to go

Friday 5th April 2013

In 2000, eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were adopted by UN member states, forming an internationally agreed blueprint to ensure everyone has access to basic human rights.

The MDGs aim to improve eight key areas affecting women and men, girls and boys, all over the world.  You can find out more about how the UN is working to achieve these goals on the UN Women website and here:

 Today, there are 1000 days left until the end of 2015, and the target date for achievement of the MDGs.

I will talk more about the MDGs and what will happen post-2015 in future posts, but for now, here is my inspiration for the weekend:

Let's do something awesome.  Let's change the world.
