" The Millennium Fellowship offers the chance to work with humanitarian issue address within the SDG, however it allows people to work within their own area of interested and skills. I am excited to be able to contribute to the world in a positive way through my own means and skill. The Millennium Fellowship will offer me the skills to be able to continue doing this through out my life. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: THE POWER OF YOUTH: STORIES OF PEACE
The Power of Youth project brings young people together through the concept of positive alternative narrative. The project involves a compilation of stories that showcase the transformational journeys of young people, in line with UN Sustainable Development Goal #16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions. The team believes that a powerful tool in the promotion of peace is story-telling. It is a misconception that young people have yet to experience adversity and through this project they have found that young people possess a passion for peace advocacy. Additionally, the project supports the United Nations Academic Impact Principle #8: Peace and Conflict Resolution.
