In the last 20 years the number of people who are living in extreme poverty has more than halved, one of the greatest achievements in recent human history. However, most people think the opposite is true: 87% of people from 24 countries surveyed think that extreme poverty has either increased or stayed the same.
People are very pessimistic about the possibility of eradicating global poverty by 2030 (UN Global Goal number 1). However, a minority of 13% thinks it is possible. These people have a distinct profile. They are Millennial achievers: high potentials who already occupy influential positions and can make a difference.
There are ample opportunities for the United Nations, governments, NGOs and engaged companies to involve these frontrunners in the realization of the Global Goals set for 2030 and accelerate the pace of positive change.
