" I am thrilled to be a part of the Millennium Fellowship and work to make the Pace community a more sustainable place. I have always been committed to the fight against climate change because it will decide the future of all the generations to come. I believe that colleges should become examples of how communities can function sustainably. I feel honored to be surrounded by such a brilliant diverse group of students. The Millennium Fellowship has given us the opportunity to motivate and help each other work toward a more sustainable future. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: A Greener Pace
A Greener Pace aims to significantly reduce Pace University's carbon footprint in the hopes that it can be used as a template for other schools to follow. The two main goals are to eliminate food waste and end the usage of all single-use plastics on campus. We will work with the administration and student government while educating the students on how to implement sustainable practices into their routines. We hope to help students create sustainable habits while in school that they will continue both in their future workplaces and homes.
