We will spare no effort to free our fellow men, women and children from the abject and dehumanizing conditions of extreme poverty, to which more than a billion of them are currently subjected. — Millennium Declaration
Campaign Idea & Objectives:
End poverty by 2015. This is the historic promise 189 world leaders made at the United Nations Millennium Summit in 2000 when they signed onto the Millennium Declaration and agreed to meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The MDGs are an eight-point road map with measurable targets and clear deadlines for improving the lives of the world’s poorest people. World leaders have agreed to achieve the MDGs by 2015.
The UN Millennium Campaign supports & inspires people from across the world to take action in support of the Millennium Development Goals. It invites people to join millions worldwide as they “Stand Up & Take Action” against poverty.
