Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Vertical
The aim of ‘Project Vertical’ is to proactively tackle issues regarding sustainability, mental health and well-being, and economic insecurities for students situated in vertical campuses. We hope that through the implementation of research, programs and initiatives that students will receive the support that they require. It is also important that the change initiated on the existing vertical campuses can be transferred across to those soon to be erected. The last thing that we want is for this shift in technological advancement to negatively effect students’ lives.
