ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM FELLOWSHIP - CLASS OF 2019
United Nations Academic Impact and MCN are proud to partner on the Millennium Fellowship. In the three months the application was open in 2019, over 7,000 young leaders applied to join the Class of 2019 on 1,209 campuses across 135 nations. 69 campuses worldwide (just 6%) were selected to host the 1,092 Millennium Fellows. The Class of 2019 is bold, innovative, and inclusive. Millennium Fellows' Projects are projected to positively impact the lives of over 978,400 people worldwide this year.
“I am looking forward to work with the Millennium Campus Network and UNAI to promote knowledge of the United Nations among the people of Kochi.
People are too preoccupied in their daily lives to see that their problems are shared by a huge number of people around them. This century is supposed to be a time of understanding and peace. It's up to us to look past our differences and move towards a better future through discussion and debate.”
Millennium Fellowship Project: MEC MUN Society
Model Engineering College Model United Nations Society (MEC MUNSoc) is an organization founded by the students of MEC that aims to bring awareness of rising international issues to the general public.
We plan to conduct one conference in October, which will impact 100-200 people directly and many more indirectly. We also publicize socio-political issues on our social media channels and break down barriers one by one.
We also plan another large-scale event in January-February, that will bring an audience of 200-300 people. Moreover, throughout the year, we will be holding workshops and orientations for college students.
India is a very diverse country, especially in opinions. Through formal debate and proper discussion, we believe that differences can be overcome.
