Millennium Fellowship Project: ECOFIKI
Ecofiki is a project aimed at educating businesses and houselholds to reduce their carbon foot print and making sustainable living a lifestyle. For example switching from the use of plastic tooth brush to a wooden one or simpler tasks such as changing the light bulbs used in households. Due to the current pandemic the plan is to start this education process through social media with the hashtag #livingsustainably on twitter, instagram, facebook and even snapchat. The success of this projecr will be measured by the number of times our content is shared,the number of visits to our page and of course followers between the month of august to decemeber we intend on reaching a goal of 700-1000 followers on our social media and that is how we will measure the success of this project.
