" I am delighted to be a Millenium Fellow as I have realized that the ambiguous goal of “raising awareness” was simply not enough. Hence Sustainable Solutions is one way to urge others to take small, concrete steps, which would be more feasible than encouraging huge, ambitious actions – and the accumulated results can be far greater over time. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Sustainable Solutions
Sustainable Solutions is a Spring 2019 competition that will identify and implement actionable solutions to SDGs 3, 4,6,7, 11 in Philadelphia.
About the Millennium Fellow
My name is Arianne and I am a rising sophomore at University of Pennsylvania. I am planning to major in sociology and minor in urban real estate and development as well as history of art. I was born and raised in Hong Kong and studied abroad in a UK boarding school for high school. I have been passionate about environmental issues ever since I achieved my open water Padi diving license. I would love to continue my work outside marine preservation.
