What is World Merit?

Officially we're a social enterprise that offers rewards and opportunities in exchange for our members taking action against social issues. Unofficially, we're a global team of creative, academic, crazy, friendly, caring activists that are trying to make the world a better place. We want opportunities based on merit and nothing else. Welcome to World Merit, whoever you are, wherever you are, you'll fit right in.

What are we trying to tackle?

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 pretty much 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.

These are the 17 logos for each one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Opportunities reward your impact

After registering your Impact online or on our app, you earn points which can be spent on opportunities. We have hundreds of opportunities and they are changing all the time. We've got things to give away, travel packages for you to experience, conferences for you to attend and internships for your development as well as many other fantastic rewards. Sign up to our platform and start gaining points right now.

Our flagship program Merit360 is a gathering of up to 360 activists split into 17 teams to tackle the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Participants spend months organising projects online and then meet for 14 days at the offline Merit360 conference to finalise their action plans. These ideas are then pitched to investors. If you have an idea that could help change the world at a grassroots level or if you're inspired to help others achieve their ideas then this program is for you.
