What is World Merit?

World Merit is a thriving community of young people taking action to make a positive difference locally and globally. We exist to empower youth to build a better future and our vision is to fight complex global issues by building confidence, raising aspirations and connecting diverse people of merit.

Using the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals as their guide, our community plans and executes projects and events on a local and national level that create positive impact and our global events bring our members together. Together, we strive for a more sustainable future and a better world for all.

What are we tackling?

As a way of measuring the social impact we're making in exchange for the opportunities, we're using the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a framework. The 17 goals encompass all of the world's issues; making them easier to tackle. The UN aims to solve all of these issues by 2030 and we're here to lead the way.
