" I am most excited to be a Millennium fellow because it will open up a network of students within my University and around the globe that share similar interests. It will be such a great opportunity to collaborate with such a diverse group of people. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Green Week
Olivia plans to work with my college's Green Officer to organise a Green Week within college; a week of events that will help promote sustainable lifestyles and raise awareness about the environment to advance the Sustainable Development Goal 13 of Climate Action and help students to reduce their carbon footprint. Olivia aims to run an online clothes swap for members of the college and share a couple of vegan recipes with college members and the wider university community.
