They are young, dynamic and aspire to change the lives of their communities through concrete and tangible actions. To assist them in this mission, the “World Merit Summit” initiative brings together, from 4 to 10 August, at its second edition at the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University (Benguerir), 450 young leaders from 20 countries. Objective: to work together on local and global actions in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. Supported, like the first edition by the OCP Group, a fan of young talents, World Merit Summit has moved to Morocco from a very small office (3 people) to 800 active members covering 8 cities in the country. The initiative aims to reach a base of 100,000 members and cover the entire territory in the next three years.
“Our action is based on the actual” activation “of young people and focused on concerted projects for sustainable development. Before taking part in this conclave, each participant had to take action for the benefit of at least 100 people. The participants will act just after this conference, and have up to six months to implement their ideas,” Mohamed Lahmami, president of Word Merit Morocco, said.
Note that a program of followers will be able to oversee this operation. Thus, mentors of international level will accompany the participants and help them to execute their projects from the first days following this 100% impact-oriented trust.
For a more adapted follow-up, “an African office of Word Merit will soon be created in Rabat”, announces Mohamed Lahmami. For its part, the OCP Group does not intend to stop there: “We are in search of all the good wills in order to reach our SDGs. The OCP Group is naturally ready to deploy all the necessary means to respond to the social and environmental challenges of communities,” said El Mehdi Saadi, Lead Program Sustainability Platform at the Phosphate Group.
