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'm excited to be a Millennium Fellow for two reasons: 1. The amazing opportunity I will have to connect with like minded and ambitious pears and 2. the opportunity to play a part in furthering sustainable development. Sustainable development is the only way to ensure that we progress as a society without compromising the ability to develop for future generations”
Millennium Fellowship Project: The SDG Ambassador Program
The SDG Ambassador Program is a project that aims to expand awareness of the SDG's to high school students by capitalizing on the specializations of university students. Students that study fields related to specific SDG's will hold workshops to present their SDG to a school. The Ambassador program also seeks to further the education of the Ambassadors by connecting them with local Boston organizations that focus on their specific SDG.
Hold at least unique 17 workshops: one for each SDG
Have all ambassadors attend at least one academic conference related to their SDG
