" I am thrilled to be a Millennium Fellow because it will give me the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on my college campus. I hope to foster a culture of sustainability and a greater concern for the environment. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Students for Sustainability
Students for Sustainability aims to put environmental consciousness at the forefront of college education. Every college student should graduate with an in-depth understanding of environmental problems and their solutions and hopefully with a commitment to sustainability. They intend to achieve this by creating an educational sustainability module for incoming students to complete that will include a section for calculating one's carbon footprint. They also wish to make it a requirement for students to plant 10 trees and take a course in the Environmental Studies Department in order to graduate.
