How to create an impact

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has"- Margaret Mead

1. Be Inspired

2. Choose your SDGs

3. Make an Impact

Don't worry about an action being 'too small'. No action is too small! You could post about the SDG you are passionate about to your Instagram story to raise awareness, swap your disposable coffee cup for a reusable one or host a screening of a documentary of an issue you care about. Explore other activities organised by our community members to be inspired. You know your community best, not us. Find out what the biggest issues and needs are in your community. Use that information to set up your activity to contribute to the solution.

How you can unlock Opportunities

We believe that talent is distributed equally across the world but opportunity isn't. That is why we reward merit with life-changing opportunities. By volunteering and contributing towards issues that you care about, you earn the points that you can exchange for opportunities to help you grow as a global citizen and increase your impact locally and globally.

Start a Council

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. Being part of a QS World Merit Council will allow you to lead a global impact while improving your personal and professional skills, make your CV shine and help you build and grow your network. We will support you during the whole process, and you and your team will have ownership and recognition while becoming part of the Global QS World Merit family.
What is a council?

QS World Merit Councils are formed by young leaders in their communities worldwide, who work together and contribute towards the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As a changemaker-led group of passionate and driven members, Councils organize actions, gatherings, and events to uplift communities from the grassroots. We never tell you what to do; you tell us what you need! You will gain access to exclusive materials from QS World Merit to help your team develop through calls, webinars and workshops; and get access to exclusive opportunities and experiences
