UN Millennium Development Goals Awards The Mission To engage the eyes and ears of the world in a momentous annual event which will continue to grow in impact and in global reach - and inspire a planetary conversation about the biggest issues facing humankind. Our challenge is to encourage the world to engage with the Millennium Development Goals and in so doing begin rewarding the real efforts and sacrifices of individuals, nations and organizations which have the most impact on bettering our world. The entertainment event will be twinned with a ‘live’ and interactive consensus forum which will act as a catalyst for engaging the world via social-networking in an ongoing dialogue surrounding the importance of reaching the Goals target date of 2015. The MDGs Awards must become the most important awards ceremony on earth. www.un-mdgawards.org
