“I'm excited to be a Millennium Fellow in order to realize my own social impact project, and to help others do the same. I also look forward to being part of a community that puts passion at the forefront of their work. I’m personally passionate about sustainability, as I’m fascinated by the interdisciplinary and collaborative nature of solving climate change. I believe it’s important to transition to a circular economy in order to shift from a high-consumption linear track to an eco-friendly cycle that mimics the Earth’s natural processes.”

Millennium Fellowship Project: Ecollegey

Ecollegey is a sustainable dorm supplies project centered around circular economy principles. The business fills the gap between Georgetown University’s move-in demand and move-out waste by collecting items that would otherwise be thrown away in the spring, and selling affordable pre-loved items in the fall. The result is a sustainable cycle that prolongs the use of items, encourages the purchase of higher quality items, and fosters a sense of camaraderie between the upperclassmen vendors and underclassmen customers. Ecollegey hopes to educate 500 students on circular economy principles, and repurpose at least 200 items to new dorms in their first year.

About the Millennium Fellow

Saskia Rohde is a rising Junior at Georgetown University studying Science, Technology, and International Affairs with a concentration in Energy and the Environment. She founded Ecollegey, and is also serving as the President of Georgetown Club Badminton, and the Georgetown German Club.
