How does MY World 2030 differ from the previous MY World survey?

Between 2013-205 the MY World 2015 survey reached nearly 10 million people with a single question about which six of sixteen development issues were of greatest relevance to their lives. The response was used as part of the post-2015 process to define a new development agenda as the Millennium Development Goals period was coming to an end. The process resulted in the Sustainable Development Goals we have today, which were adopted by world leaders in 2015.
MY World 2030 version of the survey continues this citizen engagement of ensuring people’s voices are a part of the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. It asks 3 questions. First, it asks whether the respondent is aware of the SDGs. Secondly, the respondent is asked to identify which six of the 17 SDGs are of greatest concern to them and their family and finally, to indicate whether the situation on their chosen goals is improving or worsening. The purpose is to track these indicators from now until 2030 to see impacts of awareness raising efforts and to provide an ongoing indication to governments and the UN of people’s priorities and of how progress on SDGs is being perceived.
MY World 2030 also improves upon the 2015 version in that it collects demographic information to help strengthen the disaggregation of the analysis of the data, namely on third gendered respondents, disabilities, and city information.

What is MY World 2030?

MY World 2030 is a global citizen survey that brings people’s voices into political debates about Sustainable Development Goals. It asks citizens whether they are aware of the Sustainable Development Goals, which six of the 17 goals are of immediate concern to them and if the situation of these has got better, stayed the same or got worse over the past 12. The survey makes people’s voices heard and shows which goals they consider more relevant to their lives.
The survey is led by the United Nations SDG Action Campaign and shared by global, national and local partners around the world. The project continues from the highly successful MY World 2015 project which gathered and channeled the voices of almost ten million people into the global process to define the Sustainable Development Goals.
