" I am eager to join this community of young, inspiring people. I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because I want to learn as much as I can from those around me. I am fighting for climate justice because I want to ensure that future generations have a quality life. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Understanding Climate Change
The project aim is to educate the community on climate change. The Millennium Fellow will have one on one conversations with adolescents and young adults. Julie will send resources that the participant will be interested, then have a one hour conversation about their anxieties or confusions concerning climate change. By the end the participant will have valuable ways to engage with their community on climate change. Two weeks after that, the Fellow will send out another survey to ask if they have done any of the things they have promised. The goals will be measured based on how many people respond, who they spoke to, and if they set out to do what was agreed upon.
