Community Involvement

First SDG World Record

Incubation Program

Social Purpose Reactivation

During these unprecedented times, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread, we have seen almost every organization across the world deeply affected – and that certainly includes non-profit and non-government organisations (NGOs).

 

How can we hope to re-activate community programs in a post-pandemic world? Social purpose initiatives can help create unique, engaging experiences that bring volunteers and sponsors back.

 

The SDG World Records (sdgworldrecords.org) program is the very first world record program dedicated to verifying future-proof, SDG-related accomplishments. By breaking records, you can draw the eyes of the world to your community and your efforts.

SocietyNext (societynext.org) Foundation’s wider purpose is to make meaningful contributions to unmet societal needs - we believe that more record breaking means more sustainability improvements around the world! SocietyNext is therefore delighted to sponsor NGOs/NPOs around the world as they apply for their first SDG World Record certificate in a post-pandemic world.
