    • Motivate - actively read content from other Supporters and let them know what you think of their content, maybe they will also take a look at your personal profile
    • Complete - use the add image options, add any relevant tags/categories and use the 'resources' option to provide specific 'read more' suggestions

    What can you include in your personal profile?

    • Everything that you believe contributes to a better world in any way.
    • The content you can contribute is divided into the following content formats:
      • Summaries & Study Notes: Summaries - Study Materials

    • In your mini CV you can indicate in different categories what you think were your best actions or experiences in your life

    • All content is divided into core categories. In addition, as the creator of your contribution, you have the option to give even more categories or 'tags' to your contributions. Consider, for example, the related country, study area, competence or sustainable development goal. This makes it easier to categorize your contributions and blogs and some blogs receive extra attention in the WorldSupporter media channels.
