" To bring the change we must be part of the change. When you be the initiator, you can make the path for others. Therefore,Millennium Fellowship is already an initiator for change so, now its our turn to follow the path to reach our dream to bring the change.We realize the importance of climatic condition whenever any calamities hits us but i strongly believed that the issues of climate action are equally important as comparison to other factors as whatever we planned for future, all actions are based on how we treate to the climate.At the same time i am also excited regarding this fellowship because its a chance to share different ideologies under same roof and will be great opportunity to learn, explore and gain ne experience.
