Millennium Fellowship Project: The Young Consultant

The Young Consultant (TYC), London, and De Kleine Consultant (DKC), The Netherlands, are student led consulting firms that provide strategic advice where it creates the highest value, primarily with social enterprises and startups. We believe that sustainable economic growth requires the facilitation of conditions that allows for quality training and employment in a way that stimulates the local economy whilst not harming the environment. We are passionate about building capacity in higher education systems and we do so by providing our consultants with an opportunity for the practical application of entrepreneurship and leadership to have an impact in their communities. Our model is a win-win formula: students are given quality training and the opportunity for personal development whilst customers receive advice on diversification, technological upgrading and innovation. This semester our London division aims to train 15 consultants to provide strategic support across a minimum of two new social enterprise initiatives.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Global Health Summer School

Global Health Summer School aims to create a 2-week international summer school in the summer of 2020. The first week will consist of students learning about the basics of Global Health, how to identify Global Health challenges and come up with solutions. The second week consists of students working in teams to create a solution for problems close to home and pitch it to a panel of judges/investors. After the summer school, there will be an implementation phase where the best projects get to try out their solutions in their local communities.

About the Millennium Fellow

Sunnyath Ali is a final year medical student at King's College London and he also holds a degree in Healthcare Management from Imperial College London. Sunnyath has a passion for global health and health innovation. After graduating, he wishes to be able to merge these two interests so that he can help reduce health inequities through creative solutions.

“Being a leader and project manager can often be intimidating and burdensome. The Millennium Fellowship programme creates an ecosystem where student leaders globally can inspire and support each other, magnifying the impact each person can bring to the table. I am honoured to be given the chance to be part of that ecosystem.”

Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Tote

Project Tote aims to tackle climate change using a behavioral shift by locals. Through this project, shoppers can borrow and donate tote bags at specified stations, located outside of small grocery stores where plastic bags are given for free. Each tote bag will include a personalized message from a local homeless person to forward the cause of fighting homelessness and instill a feeling of inclusivity in the community. The goal is to establish three self-running tote bag stations in Elephant and Castle, London by November 2019.
