Millennium Fellowship Project: Building humans to think differently
Our project is a multifaceted one. We try to work in different focuses at the same time to increase our impact.We are planning to implement Solid waste management system in our campus. The plight of SWM in our campus is not very commendable. We are trying to bring about behavioral change and structural improvement in this area. We also aim to collaborate with other government agencies and NGOs to increase our impact. We are already maintaining a plantation with approximately 1500 saplings. We are planning to increase the number of saplings in our plantation. We are planning to influence our target audience to live a more sustainable life by online videos. Since as a team we live in different parts of the country we will try to influence the area around our home.
