These are just some of the 75 MEP candidates who have already signed our ONE VOTE 2014 pledge.

Extreme poverty has been halved in the last 20 years, and could be virtually eliminated by 2030. Whether or not we hit that target is in our hands – every single one of us has a part to play.

In a few weeks, citizens across Europe will be going to the polls to vote for a new European Parliament for the next five years. The EU as a whole is the world’s biggest aid donor and it is responsible for dozens of laws that can level the playing field for developing economies to thrive and prosper.

That is why we are running the ONE VOTE 2014 campaign. We want candidates for the European elections to commit to doing their part during their 5-year mandate to help end extreme poverty by 2030.

In France, Belgium, Italy, the UK, the Netherlands and Germany, ONE’s Youth Ambassadors – young activists that campaign locally to fight extreme poverty – are asking candidates from different political parties to sign our ONE VOTE 2014 pledge.  It reads:

Ending extreme poverty is in our hands. Together, we can make sure it is virtually eliminated by 2030. In the next 5 years, we need to build support for the poorest countries, especially through investments in agriculture, healthcare and access to energy, and to make governments and businesses transparent and accountable.

As a representative of the [Italian] people, I will make sure we keep our promises in the fight against extreme poverty, and help ensure that our laws make it easier for the world’s poor to lift themselves out of poverty.

As we count down to the European elections, our Youth Ambassadors will be tracking down even more candidates and asking them to add their name.

You can tell MEP candidates you want them to act too: sign our ONE VOTE 2014 petition.
