This Social Business top list of Millenium Development Goal innovations includes responses to considering "how far we've come" when it comes to the goals set in 2000 and the end-date was set in 2015. Many writers are considering what was not met, for instance, Dr. Fred Boltz, of Conservation International, considered sustainability and nature to be a key recommendation category.

From scalable water systems like that of WaterHealth International to poverty partnership videos in which Grameen Bank founder Muhammad Yunus talks to CCTV, the Chinese National TV, these Millennium Development Goal innovations chart a then-and-now approach to international issues but one still firmly rooted in a future-oriented perspective and perhaps less concerned with the now-ness of the now.
