World Merit Day: "Speak up and speak out"

Enthusiam, passion and hope exuded from the first ever World Merit Day held in Liverpool last week. The event brought together hundreds of young leaders – including Malala Yousafzai – who are all driven towards making positive social change. 

Dance troops stormed the stage and speakers inspired a gripped audience making it impossible not to be swept along by the World Merit spirit. We are looking forward to keeping track of the progress the young World Merit fellows make in tacking the issues of gender inequality and climate change over the next 12 months.
