Millennium Fellowship Project: Youth Perspective
Youth Perspective is an initiative for maximizing youth involvement in sustainable development by putting together a community of writers tasked with creating quality content that addresses, dissects and provides in depth scholarly study of socio-economic and socio-political problems that are a hurdle in the journey towards Sustainable Development. This content in the form of studies, features and articles will be hosted on our website with global outreach with the aim of approaching global community and concerned international agencies to provide viable solutions. Additionally, the existing body of writers has put together a curriculum that will be taught to more university students who want to be the part of the community of young change makers. The initiative will also highlight the preexisting and underway projects by governmental and nongovernmental agencies that tackle the problems and will link them up to the global communities working towards the same goals for exchange.
