mdg1, National College “B.P.Hasdeu”, Romania, Question:

 

Hello friends! Here are our questions: 

1. Which of the  Milenium Development Goals do you think  it would be the most important ? Do you think that certain diseases like HIV / AIDS could affect these goals? How and how much? 

2.Do you think that we can find more Milenium Development Goals?Where?Give us some exemples

 


Answer from mdg2

 

MDG We think the most important goal is: Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger. Poverty and hunger deny people their basic human rights. Once these are met, people can go ahead and find solutions to their other issues. They can plan and focus on development matters. Children from a poor background will lack food and other necessities that will hinder concentration in school. Some may not even attain education for lack of basic material such as school uniform and stationery.
HIV/AIDS will most certainly hinder the attainment of the millennium goals. More money will be needed for medication and there are times when working people with HIV and AIDS will be down and unproductive. The family unit will not be upheld in the case some member succumbs to the disease. Children will miss parental love if one or both parents die. Education for these children may not be attained to the intended level The future of the millennium child will be adversely affected.
2. Yes we could find more millennium goals. A survey could be conducted, more like a needs assessment where people speak up about what they would like to see happen. This would be important as they would have a say and participate with ease, knowing it directly affected them. Some goals would be to stop any form of discrimination and to abolish corruption at all levels.

1. Which of the millennium development goals do you think it would be the most important? Do you think that certain diseases like HIV/Aids could affect these goals? How and how much?

Environmental sustainability is the most important in the eight millennium development goals. This is because environment is the backbone of other millennium development goals. As we strive to achieve the other goals, we have to consider what is around us and conscious of some of the things we get rid of from the environment.

 

  • Yes, diseases absolutely affect these goals. In order to get drugs, trees have to be cut down and to be specific; the rare species of trees thus affect the environment and can lead to global warming. An example is quinine.
  • Secondly, diseases like HIV/ Aids affects the goal in the the environmentalists themselves may succumb to the disease instead of having helped in the sustainability of the environment. This one will also affect the families in that they will also need to spend more in their patient other than conserving the environment
  • Another way is when the government spends a lot in helping the diseased instead of rendering much care to the environment. This is because the government has to cater for the families of the diseased and also for their medication.

2. Do you think we can find more millennium development goals? Where? Give us some examples.

Of course, all the other MDGs are centered toward the future and therefore more of them can be come up with.

They can be found in the day to day life like in the developing countries, they have dreams of reaching to the point of the developed countries thus enabling them come up with their own goals of reaching the standards of the the developed countries. An example is our own country, Kenya: VISION 2030 and our neighboring country Uganda: Eying for transition and fighting drought

The youth are said to be the future leaders of tomorrow add therefore need not to be left out in the race for the MDGs. This can lead to another goal: empowering the youth.

Answer from mdg6

 

The United Nations have been changing the world by setting goals such as putting an end to poverty and hunger, and helping children around the world to stay healthy.  These are just some examples of the goals that they have set to make the world a better place to live in for everyone. However, diseases like HIV/AIDS and Malaria can have a great impact on these goals and can stand in the way of accomplishing them, and we fear that they may make them unreachable. Did you know that forty million people are currently living with HIV, and because thirty five million people are currently living with AIDS? This is a huge obstacle standing in the way of reaching the United Nations’ goals. In spite of this fact, these goals aren’t entirely hopeless. If we all put our heads together, we can accomplish anything, including finding a cure for AIDS and achieving all the Millennium Development Goals. One example of what organizations are already doing is that the UNDP has donated $142.8 million so that 400,000 people in Zambia can have shots to prevent HIV/AIDS. Together, we can change the world!

Here is a brief explanation with images to explain to you how diseases such as HIV/AIDS and Malaria are affecting Millennium Development Goals, and what we can do to conquer them and to make the world a better place.

Hello,

1)      Which of the Milenium Development Goals do you think it would be the most important? Do you think that certain diseases like HIV/AIDS could affect these goals? How and how much?

 

              About the Milenium Development Goals, I think that all aof them are important because  includes a lot of goals which are  very important from humanity. For example, the goal “Universal acces to primary education”is one of the most important because it is desired that by 2015 every child, girl or boy, to be able to complete a full course of primary education, no matter which the country is. Also, this goal wants to increase the number of schools for disabled children in all continents, so they can integrate better in society.

          Another goal which I think is very important is “Reducing child mortality”     which has increased a lot in the last time. This goal wants to reduce the number of child mortality by building hospitals in developing countries and providing them with special equipment, which I think is very important for humanity. But, like goals, it has to fix some problem in society. One problem is the diseases HIV  or AIDS which affects a lot this goal by transmitting the diseases from mother to child at birth. So these diseases affects a lot this goal, but the Milenium Development Goals fight with this big problem.

2)     Do you think that we can find more MIlenium Development Goals? Give us some exemples.

        Well, I think we can find more Milenium Development Goals, only if we want to find them and put them into practice. The best way to find these goals is to initiate worldwide surveys asking people what  the problems that they are facing  more often are.For exemple: ”Ensure environmental sustainability” “Develop a global partnership for development”, “Promote gender equality and empower women” and a lot like these.

What is the Most Important Millennium Development Goal?                                          
 
 
 
Introduction:
 
            Environmental sustainability, universal education, gender equality, global partnership, HIV/AIDS, maternal health, healthcare and poverty. These are the millennium development goals. Which millennium development goal is the most important? This question is asked from people around the world. In this report, this question will be answered by explaining earth day, our survey data that was collected and our personal opinion.
 
 
 
Survey Data:
 
            In the graph “Which millennium development goal is the most important?” the option which was chosen the most was environmental sustainability and the option which was chosen the least was Gender equality. Environmental sustainability was chosen the most because environment wasn't that clean before. The reason why Gender equality was chosen the least is because in old times males were way ahead of females. Health care had a frequency of 3 because health care wasn't in a position where they could save more lives in previous centuries.
 
            In the graph “Which millennium development goal do you think we should add?” most of the people chose the option “Global warming” and the option they chose the least was “Universal education”. The reason why “Universal education” was chosen the least is that people didn't know lots of things about education throughout the world and because the people surveyed mostly think school is a dumb thing..
 
            In the graph “What is the least important millennium development goal?” The graph shows nobody thinks universal education, and healthcare are important. Most people think global partnership and gender equality are the most important. Many people also cannot decide the least important millennium development goal. Nobody thinks universal education and healthcare are the most important because they may think there are a lot more important goals like global partnership or gender equality. They may also think most countries have completed these goals. Most people think global partnership is the most important because there are so many wars happening around the world and they want all the countries to stop. Most people think gender equality is the most important goal because almost everywhere around the world, men get all the rights and the women don’t. Most people want to fix this because everyone should have equal rights. Most people can’t decide the least important goal because they think all the goals are very important and we need to work on all of them. Overall, this graph shows the least important millennium development goal.
 
            The following graph answers the question “Do you think more money should be spent in fixing the millennium development goals? How much money?” In the graph most people think either a lot or some money should be spent in fixing these goals. Not a lot of people think little to no money should be spent in fixing these goals. Most people think either a lot or some money, or little to no money should be spent in fixing these goals because we made these goals to COMPLETE them so we should try our best to complete them. We should do as much as we can to complete these goals, or making these goals would be useless. Overall, this graph shows how much money should be spent in fixing the millennium development goals.
 
            This graph shows people who think we should or shouldn't have a public speakers make speeches about Millennium Goals. The graph shows that 49% of people say yes to more public speeches. This graph shows “no” is the lowest answer with 3%. The graph does not go any lower than 3%.This is because people think that there should be more awareness in Millennium Goals like HIV/AIDS. The 3% of people who say “no” to more speeches on Millennium Goals may have had speeches said to them or feel they already know about Millennium Goals. The fact that 3% is the lowest percentage on the is probably because they feel people including themselves are not aware of Millennium Goals. Overall the mentioned graph demonstrates people who think we should or shouldn't have more public speaker make speeches on Millennium Goals. 
 
            This graph shows how people prefer to find out about Millennium Goals. Most people like to find out about Millennium Goals through the internet. 1 person likes to use books to find out about Millennium Goals. Newspaper and other have the same amount of votes with 2 votes each. This is because most people use the internet in their everyday life for stuff like face book, twitter, etc. So, they can use it for research while books you have to go to the library and it's not as entertaining. Overall the graph mentioned shows how people like to find out about Millennium Goals.
 
 
 
·         Environmental Sustainability is chosen the most for most important Millennium Development Goal.
 
·         Gender Equality is chosen for the least for the most important Millennium Development Goal.
 
·         Internet is chosen the most for “how do you prefer to find out about Millennium Development Goals.
 
·         Only 1 person said they like to use a book to find out about Millennium Development Goal.
 
·         Most people say we should use a lot of money for millennium development goals.
 
 
 
Earth Day:
 
 
 
Earth Day is when people clean their environment. It is celebrated every April 22, and more than 6 million Canadians celebrate and participate in the activities and clean their environment. Nearly every school child in Canada takes part in an Earth Day activity. In Canada we provide several activities that can be done during the month of April to celebrate Earth Day. The Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto hosts environmental workshops and speakers for students. In 1990 our country created the EDC (Earth Day Canada). The EDC helps Canadians to lower their impact on the environment. We also have Earth Hour. Even though it's not during the month of April, we all switch our lights and technology off for 1 hour. At my school Bruce Trail, we are celebrating earth day by holding the Green Games for one week. Our school will compete in litter-less lunch competition, Recyclable art competition, and many other activities. All year we use recycling bins, Green bins for composting and have litter-less lunches ones a week. We love our environment and we keep it clean.
 
 
 
Personal Opinions: I think that Poverty is the most important Millennium Development Goal. I think that Gender Equality is the second most important Millennium Development Goal. I feel Poverty is the most important Millennium Development Goal because over 1.4 billion people live in Poverty. That means they live with less than $1.50, have a low amount of food and bad houses or no houses. This is the most important in my opinion because many people are dying because of Poverty. Also Gender Equality is important because males and females are treated differently, Some females cannot get jobs or go to school because of their gender. Also 70% of extreme poverty is women or girls. Females also sometimes cannot vote. Gender Equality most of the time gives males and advantage in job opportunities and education.
 

 

 
Conclusion:
 
            In this report, we learned a lot of information about the millennium development goals from the contacting of the Halton Region Police, our survey data and our personal opinions. What do you think is the most important millennium goal?
