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 want to reduce waste on college campuses. They currently have a reputation for being wasteful relating to parties, but that can be changed with how we address filling stations of liquids. Rather than wasting liquid, which in some countries isn't clean, we can just limit the amount we use so that more is saved.”
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project 19.7
Project 19.7 aims to mitigate water waste from the automatic beverage dispensers that are used at various locations by not allowing for overflow and by making spillage more difficult.
