Join the Gates Foundation's MDG Photo Campaign

Participate in a photo project in which we each present our vision of a better global future.

As part of their efforts with TEDxChange, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is asking people around the world to participate in a photo project in which we each present our vision of a better global future. Simply follow the instructions at this link to download the template sign. Then write your vision of "the future we'll make" and take a photo (you can see some examples above). Finally, upload your photo to this Flickr group—where you can currently see all the pictures.

The idea is to help "put a personal face to some of the world’s most pressing issues and envision a future where every person has the opportunity to live a healthy and productive life." Go help them out.
