" While I may not have the same background as every member of this community, I do believe we want to achieve the same goal. I want to be challenged, tested, and questioned about the different perspectives that Sustainable Development has, and by being in the Millennium Fellowship, I know my actions will impact thousands. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Sustainability Student Program
The Student Sustainability Program (Programa Estudiantil de Sostenibilidad) is part of my university Tec of Monterrey's executive student body, representing more than +18,000 students + academia. It is a multidisciplinary student body that develops, implements, and manages actions and projects aligned with sustainable development's objectives to solve global problems and thus build a prosperous society. Our mission is to achieve students' integration of the three pillars of sustainability: environmental, economic, and social within their development as future leaders. As well, we want students to involve the rest of the community by creating a responsible culture within their environment, taking into account the needs of future generations.
