Duke University | North Carolina, United States | Advancing SDG 7 & UNAI 9
" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it allows me to be a part of this great global community of youth working to improve the world. I strongly believe that humanity's progress is linked to nature's progress. Having grown up in a region reliant on agriculture, I have seen firsthand the negative effects of environmental damage. It is thus that I made a commitment at a young age to improve the unity between humanity and nature. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Youchangeearth.org
The team are creating an individual climate change action platform that provides individualised guides to users of all demographics. They provide them with a list of different action guides (and their positive effect on the earth upon completion) that they can choose from based on interest. The team uses key behavioural insights to develop the way they frame and present our information to users to ensure motivation and incentivisation to complete their actions.
The goal is to launch the website by september and reach out to 100,000 users by December.
