Millennium Development Goals
A Blueprint for Progress

VIDEO 2010: UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and international figure-skating sensation Yuna Kim emphasises that children are at the heart of the Millennium Development Goals.

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) for the advancement of humanity and the survival of humankind.

Human development, they agreed, is key to sustaining social and economic progress in all countries.

The Millennium Declaration is their vision for peace and security, poverty reduction, the environment and human rights. And the MDGs, eight goals with measurable targets and clear deadlines, their road map for improving the lives of the world’s poorest people. World leaders have agreed to achieve the MDGs by 2015.

While realisation of the MDGs is the primary responsibility of Governments, each of us also has a role to play to ensure these goals are met. The United Nations Millennium Campaign supports and inspires people from around the world to take action in support of the Millennium Development Goals.

Join the growing global movement of people who are working to achieve the MDGs by 2015. Rich or poor, young or old, man or woman, your voice counts.
