This December, the IDG Summit Team invites you to Vote for Girls to keep girls’ voices and experiences in the Post-2015 Agenda at the United Nations.
Here’s what’s happening:
From 2000 – 2015, the United Nations used the Millennium Development Goals (or MDGs) to establish a vision of a better world for people everywhere.
The MDGs included 8 goals:
In 2015, the Millennium Development Goals will come to an end and the international community will need to create a new plan to help people around the world.
This new plan is called the “Post-2015 Agenda.” This is where YOU come in! YOU can help make sure that the United Nations includes girls’ voices and experiences as the Post-2015 Agenda gets formed. And it is SO EASY. Here are 3 Steps that YOU can take:
Step 1: Vote for Girls
Go to the My World survey and add “Girls” to the Suggest a Priority section at the bottom. Complete the rest of the survey and Click “Vote” to make sure that your voice is heard!
Step 2: Show the World Why You Voted for Girls
On a piece of paper, write down why you think it is important to include girls in the Post-2015 Agenda. For example, “I Voted for Girls because…” then add your response.
Take a photo of yourself holding the Vote for Girls paper and post it on Instagram.
Make sure to add the hashtags #Vote4Girls #Post2015 #11MonthsofAction and add @IDG2014 and @NGOWGG in the caption.
Step 3: Join us in our fight for girls’ rights across the globe!
