Millennium Fellowship Project: Recycling initiatives at Becker College
I'm working on Recycling Initiatives At Becker College, together with the Student Government Advisory Board. We are currently working on increasing the sustainability of Becker College by increasing the access and use of recycling bins around campus, as well as increasing the use of biodegradable materials in our dining services. We also hope to increase awareness of recycling within the student body through posters, signs, and events. With this project we are hoping to work towards the UNAI's 9th Principle on Sustainability and the 11th SDG on sustainable cities and communities as well as a bit of the 13th Regarding Climate Action.
