" I am excited to be a part of the Millennium Fellowship because it is a great opportunity for me to work with bright, forward-thinking students who want to impact the world as much as I do. The vast network of global student leaders who build up this community are the reason in which I am hopeful for the future. I cannot wait to make my mark as a part of this community! "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Water NextGen Project
The Water NextGen Project is aimed at raising awareness of every individual's water footprint and how high amounts of consumptive use can cause water sustainability problems. This will also extend to how water sustainability complications can give rise to further consequences in every facet of sustainability.
The main goal of this project is the education of the next generation of students to instill the right information early on. Focusing mostly on elementary and middle schools, the objective is to
give customized sustainability lessons that students will be able to relate to and find ways to apply to their own lives. These lessons will incorporate fun activities and deeper thinking to truly engage students.
