I’ve been given the most wonderful opportunity, and I would like you to help me share it with others. To do so, all I ask now, is your worthy desired contribution. I am one of the first ever group of participants in the Merit360 Program. World Merit is a charity that encourages young people across the world to take action on important social issues. I qualified for this program by consistently demonstrating my desire to contribute to my community. I’m most proud of EXAMPLE PROJECT. A thorough selection process identified me as a suited participant to work on an intensive one-year program. We are learning how to become the leaders of tomorrow, to cooperate globally, and to help make a better, more peaceful, more sustainable future for us all. Wherever participants go, whether into business, entrepreneurship, or become leaders of their communities, what we learn as Merit360 delegates will go with us. One of the challenges I have been set, as part of the program, is to engage local businesses and individuals in helping ensure that other young people can benefit from this great chance. We call it the Pay it Forward challenge. Please find out more about Merit360 here: worldmerit.org/merit360.
Merit360 is set to have young global citizens from all over the world come together to tackle the worlds most pressing issues. Under the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals, participants will be working on an action plan that will be presented at the United Nations Headquarters on September 9th 2016, a plan that afterwards will be implemented collaboratively across the world to make positive change. Delegates will connect, listen, debate, share stories, challenge each other’s perspectives and design innovative solutions.
Ever delegate has already started doing research in their chosen SDG to prepare Action Plan 001. As part of World Merit’s partnership with the United Nations, these Action Plans will be presented with the objective of unleashing the upcoming generation to successfully addressing significant global challenges fully by 2030.After each Merit360 the attending delegates become World Merit UN Goal Keepers. They are charged to work with real initiative on the designed projects and to lend their power to the good ideas and strategies for change of other organisations and companies.
Thank you in advance for any large or small contribution – it will change the life of an individual and help address the most complex issues of our planet.
