Millennium Fellowship Project: Penn Campus Hub Project
As a collective Campus Hub project, 7 out of the whole Penn Penn Millennium Fellowship cohort participated in a project video recording ourselves doing a challenge related to a SDG. From promoting a more sustainable consumption habit to reducing waste in our daily lives, we challenged ourselves to meet a unique goal we had set for ourselves to not only experience what it is like to change our lifestyle based on the common goal of improving the planet but also to challenge others to think about ways in which they can modify their own actions for the same cause.
