Global goals

small_121790568What global goals should there be after 2015?
I found this very interesting webpage on the deep seas of Internet: http://www.myworld2015.org
MY World is a simple survey that United Nations together with some other partners are making to find out what issues people prioritize, so that global leaders can be informed as they begin the process of defining the new development agenda for the world = what global goals there should be after 2015. MY World asks individuals which six of sixteen possible issues they think would make the most difference to their lives.
The survey continues all the way until 2015, but already in 2013, United Nations are using the results as an input for discussions.
Yes, I can see that you think that an Internet survey is not going to get many votes from poor/er communities, but they also gather data in paper form through various organizations in these communities. They can also weight the result to ensure that the responses of poor people count in proportion to their numbers in the whole population, and are not drowned out by a large web response in high income countries.
