About Momentum1000

On April 5, 2013, a diverse group of organizations from all parts of the international development community mounted a global 1,000-minute digital media rally to raise awareness and inspire action around the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and marked the 1,000 day milestone leading to 2015.

This social media surge featured more than 80 digital events and 1,000 consecutive minutes of engagement and amplification of messages via several digital tools. Partner organizations rallied their respective constituencies, friends and supporters to tell stories about what’s working and what can be done to advance the MDGs.

Together, we ignited discussion, raised awareness, rallied our communities, and helped drive positive action around the MDGs and the ongoing post-2015 international development dialogue.
