UNITED NATIONS ACADEMIC IMPACT AND MCN PROUDLY PRESENT RILEY ELIZABETH LUCKMANN, A MILLENNIUM FELLOW FOR THE CLASS OF 2020.
Furman University | South Carolina, United States | Advancing SDG 11 & UNAI 9
" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow in order to expand my network on and off campus. I will get to meet and learn from new people while completing my goal of making Furman University students more aware of how they can live sustainably while living on campus. This fellowship in particular gives me the opportunity and resources that will lead me to better my community. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: A More Sustainable Furman
A few years ago, a group of students at Furman University created a 'Green Guide' which is a compilation of tips, advice, and information about how to live sustainably on campus. Specifically, it has sections including water and energy conservation, recycling, composting, eating sustainably, and local green transportation options. While this guide is rich with information and helpful tips, much of the student body doesn't even know it exists. For ths project, Riley will partner with an organization on campus, called the Eco Reps, whose goal is to educate peers about sustainable living, in order to give this guide more publicity on campus. The Fellow will create a QR code and post it around campus, in residence halls, and deliver them specifically to individual freshman dorms to encourage freshmen students to create eco friendly habits early on in their college career. Doing this will help advertise the Green Guide and allow more students to be educated about the ways they can live sustainably on campus. In addition, Riley will have an educational portion of his project by bringing a speaker into Furman to talk about how important it is to live sustainably and the difference it can make.
