Today there are exactly 500 days left to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)! We want to highlight the success stories and raise our voices for the challenges that remain for women and girls around the world.
Here are 10 things you can do...
 

1. Join the conversation using #MDGMomentum!

 

The world has made important progress toward eradicating extreme poverty and hunger worldwide, but there is still a lot of work to be done. Throughout the day today and in these next 500 days, we will be joining a worldwide digital conversation on the MDGs and how we can improve lives.

6. #ShowYourSelfie with the world!

 

#ShowYourSelfie is a visual petition with a difference. It's a platform to bring young people together, amplify and empower them to be seen and have their voices heard. We cannot allow history's biggest generation of young people to be invisible. So join in and #ShowYourSelfie to the world! 
 

7. Hold our leaders accountable!

 

You can do this in person at events, through Twitter, via email and by sending a letter. Let them know what action you want to see in your community and in the world! Become a Global Citizen and get some more great tips!
