EI strongly encourages its affiliates, teachers and students to vote in the My World survey launched by the UN. This survey asks citizens from all over the world to share their thoughts on what priorities to include in the global development agenda beyond 2015. A good education is one of the sixteen priorities that can be chosen.

A good education, the survey explains, “means that all children should have a high quality primary and secondary education that equips them for employment and an enjoyable life”.

My World is a global survey for citizens led by the United Nations and partners. It aims to capture people's voices, priorities and views, so that global leaders can be informed as they begin the process of defining the new development agenda for the world.

Results will firstly be submitted to the UN Secretary General´s High Level Panel for Post-2015 before their meetings in Bali and New York and will feed into their final report and recommendations for a new development framework in May 2013.

“It is of outmost importance that education stakeholders make their voice heard about the post-2015 agenda,” said EI Deputy General Secretary David Edwards. “This survey is a great opportunity to influence future global developments and advocate for quality education.”
