Merit360 is to be the worlds most significant program for global citizens wanting to tackle the UN Sustainable Development Goals. It is innovative and inspirational and needs you. You will work as part of a team of 360 people representing almost every country, and what you develop will be presented to the United Nations and be implemented for the good of global society. You will lead hundreds of thousands of people, from World Merit and beyond, in taking action and ensuring a better future for all.
Our generation has been left with a stark reality; we have to tackle the problems of the planet, it is no longer possible to avoid the responsibility. With the SDG’s come 169 specific targets designed to help organisations and individuals focus on what needs to be done. Through World Merit, Merit360 and our partners you will be at the vanguard of making this world a place where we continue to increasingly thrive. During Merit360 you will have the opportunity to work towards ideas and projects that can really make a difference to communities around the world.
This prestigious program will be underwritten and heavily subsidised by World Merit and supporting organisations. You will however be asked to pay / fundraise a minimum of £750 to have your place in New York confirmed; you are also responsible for your own logistics in getting to and from New York City. The more you fundraise the more we can subsidise future participants, as this is part of a 15 year cycle of Merit360 programs – hand in hand with the United Nations cycle. We will support your fundraising efforts by providing you with a fundraising platform to use.
