" I am pleased to be a Millennium fellow because, it provides me with the opportunity for wider impact in an environment within which; I can reflect and cultivate core values such as empathy, humility and inclusion. I am certain that through this training, my skills in leadership and social impact will be greatly improved, while I interact with other young people and take informed actions for United Nations goals. I am passionate about the far-reaching effects of Climate change and its threats to human health. I believe that, intensive climate change strategies involving all stakeholders: Healthcare professionals, Environmental health experts and the public, would effectively provide protection for Human and Climate health.

Millennium Fellowship Project: GalesActGreen
The GalesActGreen initiative is one which strives to engender Climate consciousness among Nurses as well as Nursing students, to enable them become ambassadors of both Environmental and Human health. This project will train nurses and nursing students who will in turn, educate their clients on the dangers of risky environmental health behaviours and how, they can preserve their health while preserving the health of the world they live in.
Over the next 4 months, we will organise at least 3 webinars and host one physically organised seminar (towards the end of the year). The 3 webinars are expected to reach at least 500 people with possibility of increased audience at subsequent webinars. Although the lone seminar to be conducted may pull less crowd due to logistics, the aim is to reach as many people as possible, through social media platforms. Since, the primary aim of this initiative is awareness and education, our impact would be measured in terms of the number of people who attend these events, and accessed our online resources.
