" This opportunity to be a Millennium Fellow excites me because it not only allows me to further my goal of making our planet more habitable but also provides me with a platform to engage with like-minded people. Together, we can take meaningful actions and hopefully leave the world a better place for our children. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: YouChangeEarth
Millions of people care about climate change - especially with media covering it as the challenge of our century. However, it is such an immense challenge that people do not know where to start and the solution seems very scattered and far off. However, whether it is sparking change around them or just reducing their own carbon footprint, people can do a lot.
YouChangeEarth.org helps a person answer 'what can I do?' and starts them on their climate journey by providing them with their personalised climate action guides.
The goal is to drive 100,000 unique visitors to the site by the end of the year.
