2011 MDG Report, Spreading the Word

MDG Report 2011Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has launched the annual progress report on the Millennium Development Goals -- the MDG Report 2011. The launch is a great occasion to raise awareness for the MDGs and shine a spotlight on where we're making progress and where stronger efforts are urgently needed.

The report presents the latest statistics on each of the Goals, globally and regionally, collected through more than 25 UN and international agencies.

Below is a list of Tweets and Facebook updates, in French, English and Spanish, that you can use to help us spread the word and remind the world of the promise world leaders made at the Millennium summit in 2000 to end poverty by 2015.

You are welcome to retweet/repost messages from the UN Millennium Development Goals Twitter and Facebook accounts:
