The Youth Institute of the City of Mexico (Instituto de la Juventud del Distrito Federal – INJUVE DF) expects to collect the information of 1 million citizens from the City of Mexico for the MY World Survey.
Three thousand young people will carry out the field work throughout Mexico City and a unique partner ID (INJUVEDF) will collect online votes and aggregate online and offline results.
The Government of the City of Mexico announced yesterday, 26 May in the City of Mexico that, through INJUVE DF, it will participate in the MY World international survey following an agreement that was solidified 22 of May in New York between the General Director of INJUVE, Lic. María Fernanda Olvera Cabrera, and the Director of the United Nations Millennium Campaign, Corinne Woods, both of whom signed the letter of intent.
Following this agreement, the City of Mexico has become the first locality to participate in the survey with a strategy of this magnitude. Through the participation of INJUVE DF, MY World will be able to learn about the post-2015 development agenda priorities of one million people from the City of Mexico. Most importantly these results will be incorporated and ready to be presented to world leaders by September 2014 to inform them about the priorities of people ahead of the development of the post-2015 agenda. To date the MY World survey has collected over 2.1 million votes from all over the world.
INJUVE DF joined this international consultation following the impact generated in the “Youth Trends Consultation 2013,” which collected the opinions of 304,000 youth – an historical figure in this type of exercise. In this new survey, INJUVE DF will take to the streets with three thousand youth representatives. These will canvass public plazas and schools, and visit house by house to spread out and ask people all over the City of Mexico: “What are the priorities which are most important for you and your family?”
The survey will take place from June to August 2014. Besides the field work, the people of Mexico City will be able to choose their 16 priorities on a unique link: http://vote.myworld2015.org/?partner=injuvedf. Thanks to this link and unique partner ID, it will be possible to see the particular priorities of the people of the City of Mexico in the post-2015 agenda. The results will be part of the MY World Global Survey of the United Nations for a better world. You can follow these results here: http://data.myworld2015.org/?partner=injuvedf.
In this respect, INJUVE DF will be adding to the actions of cooperation and partnership between the City of Mexico and the United Nations. The Institute hopes that this represents the first of what will hopefully be many agreements made with the United Nations in favor of the future of young people in the City of Mexico.
