How can humanity actually achieve the UN Millenium Goals? How can we each play a bigger part to help ensure that we do meet the goals?

The Millenium Goals can be found at: http://www.un.org/millenniumgoals/ There were targets for 2015. How can we step up our efforts to be sure that we are on Target for 2015 and beyond. A lot is riding on our success at achieving these important goals and more. I would like to add the goal of achieving world peace as well!

The UN Millenium Goals are:

1) End Poverty and Hunger

2) Universal Education

3) Gender Equality

4) Child Health

5) Maternal Health

6) Combat HIV/ AIDS, Malaria and other diseases

7) Environmental Sustainability

8) Global Partnership


What additional millenium development goals would you like the UN to add to this list?

    Feb 18 2013: It's not going to happen in this cultural paradigm. It is impossible.

    However, if our cultural paradigm were to change significantly (which I don't see happening for as long as the Abrahamic religions have such a major say in the matter), then we would be living in a very different world and all things that we would end up wanting would be possible.
