Meritus Badging System
The Meritus Badging System is based on level of participation, initiative, collaboration, and introspection. For a complete breakdown of our criteria, review GWA Points-Merit and Life Scale
The MISSIONs published are steps to aid in the completion of Player/ Team Quests. GWA's merit system is currently divided into 8 different sectors of identification and recognition.
These sectors are:
1: Character virtues and strengths (virtues in action)
2: Service Recognition (military, health, emergency responder)
3: Skills (can include degrees, certificates, and life skills)
4: Achievement certification and awards
5: Equipment Exchange/Share (Tools, equipment, and spaces and rides to be shared and traded)
6: Exchange and Barter (Energy exchange, electricity sharing, goods, time, mentorship)
7: Community 4 Community Sector and Level of Impact (collaboration, networking, co-op/federation)
8: : Regenerative/SDGs Sector and Level of Impact (collaboration, networking, co-op/federation) We are developing this ecosystem to enable all community organizations and business to participate as well.
